Letter from the mayor regarding coronavirus:
On March 13, 2020, the president declared a national state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important that during this crisis and its recovery that we assure effective responsive communication and that key measures are being taken to prevent the spread of the virus so as to minimize its impact on the community, our health care infrastructure and our economy.
In response to this emergency there will be limited access to village hall to only critical business. Residents are encouraged to use online options for water/trash payments along with the drop box outside our building or regular mail. You may call the Fiscal office or Tax Department and someone will return those calls as needed based upon urgency. Tax returns can also be mailed or placed in the outside drop box.
The Police Department asks that if an Emergency arises dial 911 and an officer will make personal contact with you immediately to address the emergency. For any Non-Emergency please call 330-874-2113 and your complaint will be addressed and handled over the phone. When it is safe to do so the officer will do a follow up in person and address any further issues if needed.
The Street Department will still be available for calls should Emergencies arise and you may call 330-795-8554. We ask that all respect the social distancing as laid out by the CDC and that only true Emergencies are handled by face-to-face meetings. Zoning questions and building permits will be handled via phone as is possible.
We are concerned about the impact to business, particularly small businesses. Many of our small business owners and their employees have no safety net so please call your favorite restaurant and ask for carry-out or a delivery. We are all in this together and with patience and understanding we can continue to meet the needs of our residents while providing a safe environment for all of our employees. There are no easy answers, but we will recover and emerge stronger because of relationships, partnerships and the kindness we’re showing now. We are also sharing some valuable information from the CDC for your information on our website.
My prayer is that you remain healthy and that God’s love shelters you under his wings of protection.
Mayor Rebecca Hubble
