Bay holds council meeting at Village Project
Bay Village City Council took a field trip on Monday, April 8, branching out from council chambers to hold a planning session at the Village Project headquarters on West Oviatt Road. Members of the administration shared highlights from their departments’ recent activities and upcoming projects with Council representatives.
Barb Harrell, Village project’s executive director, gave the city leaders a guided tour of the newly renovated space. The non-profit recently completed an expansion into the adjacent office space that used to house the Thomas & Thomas photography studio. After the tour and public meeting, attendees were treated to a healthy Village project meal of soup and salad.
The meeting concluded with the mayor, Council members and department heads participating in Village Project activities, including writing inspirational messages to be placed in Easter eggs for clients, sorting silverware, doing dishes and mopping the kitchen.
Council President Dwight Clark thanked Harrell and the Village Project for hosting the meeting. “Each of us thoroughly enjoyed the venue, the dinner meal, and a chance to help out one of Bay Village’s finest nonprofit organizations,” Clark said. “We appreciated learning how you and your volunteers positively impact individuals and families throughout the many cities in which you provide an invaluable resource.”
