Ohio tpl 1 City Firm In Stand Against Sunday Laundry East Cleveland is standing firm on its conviction that a Sunday-operated laundry is not essential to the welfare of the city. Tuesday evening the City Commission accepted the recom mendation of the Zoning Board of Appeals that the Clesco Co. be permitted to operate a self service, coin-operated laundry at 12501 Superior ave., but the op eration must be closed from mid ’i?ht Saturday to midnight Sun day. «. Durant Mix read the motion which was seconded by Frank Fellows and sustained by the other members of the Commis sion. The motion is as follows: “I move that the action of the Board of Zoning Appeals in requiring the automatic laundry at 12501 Superior ave., East Cleveland, Ohio, to be closed on Sunday be approved and sus tained for the following rea sons: 1. We find the applicant, George Frieden, did not in the original hearing advise the Board of Zoning Appeals that a Sunday operation was con templated. The operation was compared to existing operations in East Cleveland which were closed on Sundays. 2. It is our finding that the laundry being in operation twenty-four hours per day, six days a week, should provide ample time for servicing the neighborhood. 3. Residents of the neighbor hood have filed a protest against the Sunday operation and have indicated that they feel that Sunday operation is not desirable or necessary. 4. To approve Sunday opera tion would condone a violation of the State Sunday closing law. 5. Inasmuch as two other similar laundry operations in East Cleveland are closed on Sunday, it would be unfair and unjust to permit this laundry to be open on Sunday. 6. This Sunday operation would be contrary to the best interests and welfare of the community.” Commission president Norman Townsend presided. Reese Dill, attorney for the appellants, stated that no clean up or repairs were made on Sun day. Such services, he stated, were confined to week days. The original appeal came be fore the zoning board in Janu ary. hen the laundry began Sunday operation, the zoning board reconsidered its action, again granted the appeal but added the no Sunday restriction. The appe’lants then appealed to the City Commission and the hearing was begun two weeks ago and then continued until this Tuesday evening’s commission session. Objection was made by Mr. Dill to a filing of a petition cir culated by the Superior-Rozelle Property Owners Civic Associa tion. During the examination by Mr. Dill of City Manager Chas. A. Carran, Chief of Police H. S. Weaver, and Law Director Stan ley A. Webster, all members of the zoning board, each one made it clear that had no mention of Sunday hours or any represen tation of Sunday hours been made in the original appeal by George Frieden, Clesco salesman who sold the local laundry pack age. “The entire board would have objected,” added Mr. Car ran.
