We strive to provide top-notch city services, while working hand-in-hand with our utility companies. We are blessed with an experienced, well-trained staff.
We know that some of our residents have been hit hard by these recent storms. We have done everything possible to assist where necessary. The City of Stow Service Department is providing a one-time curbside collection for residents for storm-related brush. Sign up and get the details here:

In other news, THANK YOU to all of our local realtors that came out to attend the City-sponsored Quarterly Realtor meeting. This is a twice-yearly event in collaboration with the City, our school district, the Stow-Munroe Falls Chamber of Commerce, and the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library. The exchange of information is so beneficial to all entities! It is a distinct goal of mine is to increase collaboration between all entities and the city in an effort to work together for the good of our community.
I am excited to look at future projects that are on the horizon for our community.
