Mayor

Responsibilities

Elected by the citizens of Cleveland every two years, the mayor provides leadership for the City of Cleveland. In addition, the mayor presides over City Council meetings and works with the council members to develop ordinances and resolutions that protect the interests of Cleveland's citizens.

On March 6, 2020, Cleveland lost its beloved Mayor Otis Cohn after his lengthy illness. Over the years, Mayor Cohn faithfully served the citizens of our city as both City Councilman and Mayor. Mayor Cohn has been instrumental in leading our transformational progress over the last several years, and his leadership and friendship will be missed by all of us.

Mayor Pro-Tem, Carolyn McWaters, is fulfilling his duties at this time.
