Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald's fiscal officer, Wade Steen, is implementing a dress code for his offices starting Monday, June 20th.
This policy applies to the vast majority of people in the County Administration Building.
Fiscal Office supervisors were made aware of a new dress code via memo.
The Fiscal Office includes the old Auditor's Office, Treasurer's Office, Recorder's Office, as well as the non judicial functions of the Clerk of Courts. It also includes the County's Budget Office and Procurement Office. In addition, the policy applies to the Boards of Revision.
