Mayor's Office 2023

Berger2021 Community-smaller - Copy (2)Greetings from Mayor Fletcher Berger

2022 was a very positive year for the City of Bedford Heights from a financial standpoint.  Although the COVID-19 Pandemic emergency has subsided, the virus itself and its variants remain an ever-present concern that we continue to respect and take seriously.  As I enter the fourth year of my fourth term in office, I have concluded that last year’s optimism regarding our strategic planning, and “all hands-on deck efforts” to confront and overcome the challenges associated with a global pandemic, proved to be effective.  Whether they are economic, infrastructural, or community-welfare related, this administration has and will continue to work with a steadfast diligence in an effort to preserve our community’s safety, long-term sustainability, and growth.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank our residents and businesses for their continued support and understanding during the uncertain times of the last few years. 

All of our facilities are open to the public.  However, we will continue to maintain our safety procedures and protocols to ensure the well-being of both our staff and visitors.  Throughout the challenges of the last few years, the City of Bedford Heights has remained a destination location for new homeowners and businesses relocating to our community.  As a city, we have been able to weather the brunt of the economic challenges associated with a global pandemic.  We continue to operate well within our budget parameters while maintaining an ample surplus of cash reserves.

Property values continue to rise in Bedford Heights, and our vacancy rate remains well below 1%.  Bedford Heights continues to welcome a diverse mix of young adults and their families either moving back to the community they grew up in, or simply relocating to Bedford Heights to establish and grow their families.  Miles Road and Richmond Road within our borders, continue to attract major commercial and industrial companies relocating to Bedford Heights.  We believe companies relocate to Bedford Heights for not only our strategic proximity to major Interstates 480 and 271, but also due to our long-standing financial stability and safety.

Every day I come to work, I am gratified by the trust the residents have placed in me to serve and govern this great community that Melva and I have called home for nearly 45 years.

As I remind everyone that I have had the opportunity to meet and greet, whether they are a resident or business owner, my door is always open; or you can reach me at 440-786-3211.  I want to let you know that the economic future looks optimistic for the City of Bedford Heights.  I personally look forward to the opportunity for our residents to gather as a community once again at our various events and activities in 2023.
