Cleveland: Downtown workers wonder about early dismissal

CLEVELAND -- A lot of downtown organizations and businesses were waiting to take their cue from Cleveland City Hall on whether to send workers home early Wednesday.

It's Mayor Frank Jackson's call. And as of midday, there was no indication the city would be sending its workers home early or asking for staggered dismissals to lessen the chances of an horrific rush hour.

The Downtown Cleveland Alliance and Building Operators and Managers Association said they take their lead from the city.

Likewise, there was no word on county or federal workers being dismissed early.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Courts will remain staffed until 4:30 p.m. as usual, according to spokesman Darren Toms. Some of the employees will be dismissed at 2:30 p.m., according to the assistant to Court Administrator Greg Popovich.

About 120,000 workers are employed downtown.
