CLEVELAND — Summit County officials are looking for the rightful owners of $3.4 million in unclaimed county funds.

The unclaimed funds are monies accumulated and owed from transactions performed at county agencies, such as over payments, fees/costs, lost heirs accounts and sheriff proceeds.

Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise said citizens can visit Acme Fresh Market locations throughout the county to search for and recover any money that is owed to them.

“I encourage everyone to search for their name in our database, because there could be money owed to you. We want to help citizens claim what is rightfully theirs,” said Scalise. “Unclaimed funds held at the county level are separate from those held by the State of Ohio. It is worth checking with our office, even if you searched the state’s unclaimed funds list.”

From Oct. 15-25, citizens can visit the following Acme Fresh Market locations from 1-6 p.m.

  • Tuesday, Oct. 15: Acme #1, 1835 W. Market St.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 16: Acme #2, 2420 Wedgewood Road
  • Thursday, Oct. 17: Acme #4, 116 W. Streetsboro Road
  • Friday, Oct. 18: Acme #12, 2630 Bailey Road
  • Monday, Oct. 21: Acme #11, 600 South Ave
  • Tuesday, Oct. 22: Acme #6, 3200 Greenwich Road
  • Wednesday, Oct. 23: Acme #14, 3235 Manchester Road
  • Thursday, Oct. 24: Acme #18, 2147 East Ave.
  • Friday, Oct. 25: Acme #21, 3875 Massillon Road

Owners of unclaimed funds can file their own claim without using a professional finder. Those who choose to do it themselves must submit a photo copy of a valid I.D. Claims are required to be signed by the owner and notarized.

County unclaimed funds in the amount of $10 or more are listed online in a database. Visit the county website here and click "unclaimed funds."
