Tyrone Riley, Council Member, District 1

From the Office of Council Member Tyrone Riley:

This week, I had the privilege to recognize Jitendra Singh.  Mr. Singh chose to exercise compassion for a young person caught attempting to steal food from his store.  Instead of calling the police and prosecuting the youth, Mr. Singh chose to offer him food, for himself and for his family. May we all look for opportunities to exercise compassion.

District Improvement Program

Toledo City Council has established the District Improvement Program (“DIP”) to enrich the quality of life for individuals, families and business owners throughout the City and empower community members to take steps toward long-term improvements. The purpose of the District Improvement Program is to give community members an opportunity to have direct input and influence into the improvement of their neighborhoods. The emphasis of the program is to help fund capital projects not currently planned by the City that have community-wide benefit.  

The program will be funded annually by appropriation of Toledo City Council. The amount appropriated for 2018 is $125,000 for each of Toledo’s six Council Districts. Applications will be approved for capital projects ONLY.
