Beachwood receives expected subpoena for records

BEACHWOOD, OH (WOIO) - The city of Beachwood has received a subpoena from Cuyahoga County asking for records pertaining to the city's business operations over the past six years, city law director Brian Reali announced on Thursday.

"We will fully comply with this subpoena and provide all of the documents requested," Reali said. "While we are happy to provide this information as we have in the past, it is unfortunate that the request is a results of baseless allegations, which have already been fully reviewed and addressed."

City reps say the city is committed to financial responsibility and accountability, and has received the best bond rating of "highest credit quality" from Fitch Ratings, as a result of the city's "strong financial management."

Reali said the city government's reputation for transparency and sound management is well-known.

"We are in the process of responding to the subpoena and we remain fully confident that the county's evaluation will reinforce the city's position," said Reali. "We have served and will continue to serve the residents of Beachwood with the highest level of efficiency and integrity."
