The 'Official' End of Summer
Happy Wednesday, Toledo.
Labor day has always meant two things to me. First, it is always a sign of the official end of summer. Further evidence? This is the last weekend to enjoy the City of Toledo pools, and the last day to swim is Sunday.
Second, it is a time to stop and show appreciation to the many men and women of labor who build things, fix things keep us safe, and strengthen our neighborhoods. I want to especially thank the members of the City of Toledo workforce unions for their exceptional service every day: AFSCME Local 7, AFSCME Local 2058, AFSCME Local 3411, IAFF Toledo Firefighters Local 92, Teamsters Local 20, Toledo Fire Chiefs’ Association Local 3382, Toledo Police Command Officers Association, Toledo Police Patrolman’s Association Local 10, and, UAW Local 12.
This year's Labor Day Parade will be Monday, September 5 at 10:00. City of Toledo offices will be closed. If you need something, Engage Toledo will be available at 419-936-2020.
Finally, the City of Toledo received a final audit from the State of Ohio this week. Because of the hard work of the team in the Finance Department, we received an overall exemplary report. You can read the report on our website at toledo.oh.gov/audit.
Have a great week, Toledo.
