Nearly new juvenile justice center in NE Ohio cost taxpayers $1 million in repairs

CLEVELAND

Repairs to a relatively new juvenile justice center in northeastern Ohio have cost taxpayers nearly $1 million.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that judges and others at the 14-month-old Cuyahoga County Juvenile Justice Center requested maintenance 3,110 times last year.

That’s an average of more than eight requests a day, including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

The work included 126 sink repairs, 56 adjustments to the heating and cooling system, 19 calls for leaking pipes, 14 inspections of roof drains and 13 refrigerator fixes.

And on 59 occasions, crews were summoned to hang pictures, clocks and other items on walls. Records show 91 hours spent on wall hangings, but do not assign a cost.

Juvenile court officials did not respond to questions about maintenance costs for their complex.
