CLEVELAND – Oh, behave! That’s the message the city wants to get across to Muni Lot tailgaters as we slide into football season this Sunday for the first Browns home game.

The city tweeted out a reminder of the Muni Lot rules Friday, including no fires, no charcoal grills and no littering.

“There’s still no alcohol consumption allowed in the Muni Lot. You are not allowed to bring alcohol into the Muni Lot,” Cleveland Police Det. Jennifer Ciaccia said.

Some see these rules as suggestions only.

Mike Cox, director of Cleveland’s Public Works Department, said the problem is not all the tailgaters, just a few.

Cox’s department cleans up the Muni Lot mess trashy tailgaters leave behind.

“I would wish that everyone would behave in a manner that’s becoming of adults,” Cox said.

He is asking for simple things, like not getting totally wasted, starting fights, leaving trash or urinating in the bushes.

“We put out 25 Porta Potties. There are always a few who won’t use the Porta Potties, or just can’t wait to use them,” Cox said.

This year, once you leave the lot for the game, you will have to leave your bags in the car.

Citing safety reasons, no backpacks, bags or purses are allowed.

You can bring all of your stuff in a clear plastic bag, but it’s see-through, so everyone can see what you have inside.

If you just have a few things, you can bring them in a small, clutch-size bag that is not see-though.
