  Akron officially has a new mayor, one described by everyone from his predecessors to his daughters as ready to face the challenges of a city that’s not done remaking itself. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more from this morning’s inauguration of Dan Horrigan.

On one hand, Horrigan says Monday morning will be all about the mundane: assigning parking spots and computer passwords and attending meetings and more meetings.

   This Friday, Dan Horrigan officially becomes Akron’s first new elected mayor in nearly three decades. He’s already appointed most of his cabinet as well as a Blue Ribbon Commission to give him an overview of how the city operates. But as WKSU’s M.L. Schultze reports, Horrigan says one of the most important advantages he has is a balance of fresh perspective and continuity.

Akron has been rated the best city in the nation when it comes to return-on-investment on spending for police. 

The calculations of the personal finance site WalletHub compare tax dollars spent per capita for police protection to crime rates, with adjustments made for poverty and unemployment rates and household income.
