During its virtual meeting on Monday, Chagrin Falls Village Council passed legislation accepting Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act funds which, if approved by state lawmakers, would reimburse the village for virus-related expenses.

Police Chief Amber Dacek said that would cover the cost of personal protective equipment for officers. The CARES money allocated under Senate Bill 310, has passed the senate and is awaiting passage by the House.

The Chagrin Falls Safety Town program for kindergarten children will proceed as planned during the last week of July pending the COVID-19 situation, Chief Dacek told council.

Parents have been asking the department about when the program would take place this year, she said.

Both the village police and fire departments sponsor Safety Town.

In other business, village Administrator Rob Jamieson announced that the Architectural Review Board has caught up with plans awaiting its attention and will return to its regular at 8:30 a.m. the first and third Tuesday of the month schedule.

The interruption in the meeting schedule was caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. Until further notice, ARB members will continue to hold public meetings virtually by Zoom, YouTube and telephone.

Those wishing to attend will find directions for joining all public meetings on the village website www.chagrin-falls.org
