Akron City Council Leadership Supports Decisions Regarding National Night Out
Akron, Ohio, August 4, 2022 – Statement from Council Leadership
Out of an abundance of caution and in the interest of safeguarding the residents they serve; Councilwoman Holland, Councilwoman Connor, and the Neighborhood Network made the difficult decision to cancel the National Night Out Events scheduled for this evening. We understand that everyone may not agree with their decision. As local public servants and community leaders, they are most knowledgeable about and intimately acquainted with their individual neighborhoods, and the respective needs and dynamics of each of those communities. We trust their judgment!
Contrary to what was reported by the Akron Beacon Journal, the National Night Out Event scheduled to take place in Kenmore is not canceled.
