As part of the on-site assessment, departmental employees and members of the College community are encouraged to offer comments at a public information session on Tuesday, August 30, at 3:30 p.m. The session will take place in the Metro Campus Center Rm 066, located at 2900 Community College Ave.
Community members also can provide input during a public call-in session from 12 to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30. To participate, call 216-987-4144. Comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA standards.
