North Olmsted,OH – Things got hot and heavy in North Olmsted Thursday night as city leaders addressed angry homeowners. It was standing room only inside the gymnasium at North Olmsted high school.
The meeting had to be moved from city hall because of the amount of people who attended.
Residents were fed up with the cities response to flooding in the area.
As of Monday, the area had been flooded at least four times since 2011. The city spent about $10 million on drainage improvements, but residents feel the results have been lacking.
Mayor Kevin Kennedy told the fuming residents to “direct the anger toward” him, but they fired off their frustration at any city official in the room.
Many residents complained that city officials seemed to be, “on stage patting themselves on the back.” Another resident said the one thing he never heard was, “I’m sorry.”

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
