AUDIO: Akron Mayor Eliminates Cabinet Positions

Written by
It was announced Monday from the mayor’s office than Dan Horrigan will be eliminating three positions in his cabinet. Those positions are in communications, health and education, and community relations.

Horrigan, the mayor of Akron, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss why he made this decision. With the revenue falling short, Horrigan says he wanted accountability to start with his office. The layoffs, according to the mayor, are “purely for economics,” as this will free up close to $430,000.

AUDIO: David James on APS School Closings

Written by
2018 has begun, but not for a lot of schools. With the extremely low temperatures, schools across Northeast Ohio have canceled classes for students, thus extending their winter breaks. But how will these dates be made up?

David James, superintendent of Akron Public Schools, talked to the Ray Horner Morning Show about schools’ protocol in calling off classes. In the past, the local districts had five allotted days to play with, but now high school students must have 1,001 hours to complete.

James says if Akron Public Schools has to miss more than the given calamity days due to weather or power outages, students will have to make up the time either after the school year or during spring break.
