As we navigate our way through another northeast Ohio winter, change is beginning to take shape within Moreland Hills. Specifically, I’m proud to announce that effective March 1st, 2023 Executive Lieutenant Todd Dietzel will assume the role as the next Police Chief of the Village of Moreland Hills. While I’m saddened that Chief Kevin Wyant will be leaving us, I wish him success and good health as it relates to his retirement. Chief Wyant has served as Chief since 2014 and in that time has proven to be a regional leader well respected by those in local member agencies and within our own Department. Chief Wyant will be missed and we all owe him a debt of gratitude for his dedication and efforts related to the Moreland Hills Police Department.
Executive Lieutenant Dietzel was selected after assessment by a panel consisting of myself, Council President Ethan Spencer, Roads and Safety Chair Tom Fish and our Village Prosecutor Santo Incorvaia. While he had some outstanding competition, Executive Lieutenant Dietzel was unanimously selected by the panel. Todd has been our Executive Lieutenant since 2014 and has worked alongside Chief Wyant on a daily basis in that capacity. He served as a Patrol Sergeant from 2004 – 2014 and as a Patrol Officer from 1998 – 2004. This experience in our wonderful Village ensures a working knowledge of our community and lends itself well toward his advancement to the position of Chief of the Department. Prior to coming to Moreland Hills, Executive Lieutenant Dietzel served the City of East Cleveland and the Cuyahoga County Metropolitan Housing Authority Police Department. As your Mayor, I am extremely confident in Executive Lieutenant Dietzel and his advancement to the position as your Police Chief. If you should see Todd please offer him congratulations as he prepares for his new role within the Moreland Hills Police Department.
Some of you have contacted my Office in the hopes of changing your natural gas supplier or to question rate increases in your monthly bill. A reminder that we are a NOPEC Community but that NOPEC, and only NOPEC, can coordinate your “opt out” and assist with rate issues. The Village does not have the ability to assist you with these issues in the same manner that we aren’t able to answer questions or assist with your internet or cable bills. A separate boxed item in this newsletter provides some contact information for NOPEC should you be interested in “opting out” of their plan and selecting another option.
A reminder that, while tempting, residents should not be feeding wildlife on their property. While this isn’t a widespread problem, I have received some concerns related to some who are doing just that. Wildlife should remain wild and practices that are motivated by good intent can actually harm the animals and create a nuisance for your neighbors.
Lastly, a word about fire safety. As our homes are sealed up this winter, please ensure that you have a working smoke detector on each level of your home at a minimum. Carbon Monoxide detectors should also be present in the basement near your utility areas and in the bedroom hallway at a minimum.
We hope that you are enjoying the winter in our beautiful Village.
