Welcome to the Village of South Russell
South Russell is home to approximately 4,000 residents and is located at the western edge of Geauga County, Ohio. The 4 mile long by 1 mile wide village is a residential community with unique character and rural “at home” charm. South Russell students attend the highly acclaimed Chagrin Falls School System.

South Russell Committee Openings
South Russell Village has an opening on the Planning Commission. The purpose of the Planning Commission members is to regulate the overall development of the village, including new businesses, subdivisions, and zoning changes in order to maintain the quality and character of the village. The Planning Commission’s next meetings are on May 10 and June 14. This is a good opportunity to learn about PC, meet the members, and get an idea of what being a member of PC is about. Members serve a six-year term. They meet on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 P.M. when needed. In 2017 PC met five times. Three residents, a member of council and the mayor make up the committee. Interested residents should submit a letter of interest along with a resume to: email@example.com
We also have an opening on The Emergency Operations Plan committee. We seek someone who would like to help the village if and when a disaster/emergency might strike. This committee serves as a guiding group of residents who would be called on to perform duties as needed during a crisis. We have developed a plan, had it approved by the Geauga County Emergency Management Group, and will test this plan in a table top exercise in the summer. Interested residents should submit a letter of interest and resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org

High Utility Bills?
Oftentimes the late winter months can bring higher-than-expected utility bills, usually because the cold snaps in January and February result in customers using more energy than normal. Click on this link for information on programs that may be helpful during this time: 2018 Energy Programs
