Cleveland, OH – At an April 23, 2013, 4:00 pm Work Session, County Council will be briefed on the progress of the planned County Administration Complex. Representatives from Geis Co., URS and the County Administration will provide information and answer questions about design and construction of the property. 

At its 5:00 p.m. Regular Meeting, County Council will consider a resolution urging the Ohio General Assembly to support the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio.   An important topic of debate at all levels of government, Medicaid expansion is projected to support basic health insurance for an additional 72,000 Cuyahoga County residents by 2015, add thousands of jobs in the county and millions of dollars to the county’s sales tax revenues. 

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meetings, located in the Council Chambers on the 1st floor of the Justice Center, or to watch via Council’s live stream at http://council.cuyahogacounty.us/.   Complimentary parking for the public is available in the Huntington Garage at Lakeside and W.3rd St.
