Cleveland City Hall closes Monday over 'cyber incident'

Cleveland City Hall and the Erieview complex will be closed Monday due to a cyber incident affecting several of the city's computer systems. The nature of the incident has not yet been confirmed, but city officials have shut down all internal systems and software platforms as a precautionary measure. The city's emergency services, including the Department of Public Safety (911, Police, Fire, and EMS), the Department of Port Control (Cleveland Hopkins and Burke Lakefront Airports), and city utilities, remain operational and unaffected by the incident.

City officials are investigating the situation and working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. Daytime 311 calls will be handled by after-hours operators in the interim. Despite the closure, employees will retain access to cloud-based Office 365 systems. The city has emphasized the importance of maintaining the security of its systems and ensuring the continuity of essential services during this period.
