OMG When is a Church NOT a Church?


RESOLUTION NO.  34-14 

A RESOLUTION GRANTING A CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT, PURSUANT TO SECTION 1123.03(a)(A) OF THE EAST CLEVELAND CODIFIED ORDINANCES, TO MURTIS TAYLOR HUMAN SERVICES SYSTEM TO OPERATE A CENTER OF ASSEMBLY AND EDUCATION AT THE MURTIS TAYLOR HEALTH CENTER, 1423 HAYDEN AVENUE, AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY FOR THE PUBLIC SAFETY, HEALTH AND WELFARE. 

Requested By:   Department of Community Development

Sponsored By:   Councilor Mansell Baker

Sometimes when something does not seem right it just needs some investigation and common sense to show the light and here is an ordinance that makes NO sense.  How can Murtis Taylor need anymore real estate when they can’t pay their own bills?  DSCF4773

In order for a government entity to get involved with a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit group requires that any mention of worship must be taken out of the mix.   Enter in Resolution 34-14 and just call it a “Center of Assembly” and no one should notice it being past.

Most people in East Cleveland have no idea that East Cleveland Library through the prior board of trustees sold the two buildings at an unknown cost.  That sale is still being investigated but this crafty resolution might just lend some light to the investigators.

DSCF4727Church and State collide in East Cleveland and unlike other churches, we the people have already paid the collection plate with the sale and now change for yet another church in the Hayden/Shaw bible belt.
