City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of City of Akron Press Office
Published: 04-13-2023

Akron, Ohio, April 13, 2023 — Today, the City of Akron has announced that beginning tomorrow, Friday, April 14 at 5pm public access to the City’s Municipal Building (166 S. High St.) and the Harold K. Stubbs Building (217 S. High St.) will be suspended until further notice.

City services will continue as normal without interruption. As the City prepares for the upcoming decisions from the grand jury seated in the Jayland Walker case, this decision was made for both the safety of city employees and the public, as well as continuity of city operations.

This change in access will also impact Akron City Council who typically meet in person at the Akron Municipal Building on Mondays. Those meetings will be held virtually until the building reopens for public access. For more information on how to sign up for public comment or to watch city council meetings, please visit

As our community prepares for the outcomes of the grand jury decisions, we encourage anyone in need of mental health resources to please click here or call 2-1-1 to get connected to support options.

The City’s site now includes a sign up to receive email notifications for any updates to the page including safety information, road closures, and more.
