Jule B. Keitz was a mayor of Grandview Heights who wanted to get things done. He ran and won election to the office in 1947 because of his stand on the issue of "wrapped garbage." He appealed to residents to approve his program, saying, "Grandview housewives can wrap garbage without costing the city or taxpayers one extra penny." Keitz won the election and then got an ordinance passed making it illegal to place glass, metal or other "injurious" materials in garbage cans. After being sworn in on New Year's Day 1948, the new mayor wasted no time getting his pet projects accomplished. Here, the mayor is shown with Grandview businessmen Don Hennen and C.L. Deyo, who donated $1,180 to buy street signs for the city. A total of 175 signs were erected at street intersections; the names formerly were marked on the curbsides. Keitz sought re-election four years later and lost to A. K. Pierce, who pledged "no city income tax, now or ever." Wrapped garbage was no longer the issue it previously was.
