street, sidewalk, or alley. This includes trees and shrubs planted

AWARDED 2013 PAUL J. FALCO SCHOLARSHIPS (added 5-29-13)
For the 15th consecutive year, Paul J. Falco Scholarships have been
awarded to students from the Village of Marble Cliff who demonstrate
outstanding scholastic and leadership qualities. The late Paul J.
Falco, who served as Mayor of the Village for 36 years, was an ardent
supporter of the Village, its residents, and the pursuit of life-long
learning. The generosity of the endowment created by Mayor Falco and
his wife, Bobbie Hall Falco, provides the opportunity to recognize
talented Marble Cliff youth seeking a college education.
Jack Kukura, Marble
Cliff Council member and the Paul J. Falco Scholarship Committee
chair, presented Falco scholarships to seven Marble Cliff students
during the Grandview Heights High School Annual Award Assembly held in
May. The 2013 recipients are Judith Basting, Lauren Jones, Courtney
O’Mara, Madeline Varner,
Adam Cincione, Madeline McGregor, and Lindsey Smith.
ITEMS WITH FREON
WILL NO LONGER BE PICKED UP (added 10-2-12)
The EPA licensed recycler that the City of
Grandview Heights uses no longer accepts freezers,
refrigerators, air conditioners or dehumidifiers. These items
were previously stored on City property with metal scraps for
collection by our recycler. The City can no longer pick up or store
these items, as Grandview Heights Service Dept. is not EPA licensed to
handle them. Effective immediately, Marble Cliff residents must make
their own arrangements for disposal of the above named items.
Grandview has provided a list of companies who will accept the items,
some at no charge (Click on PUBLIC NOTICES above).

everywhere. Rainwater and snowmelt that run off our streets and lawns
pick up fertilizers, dirt, pesticides, oil and grease, and many other
pollutants on the way to the Scioto River. Residents are urged to do
