Responsible Restart Ohio

Governor Mike Dewine extended the Stay and Home order until the end of May and renamed the order to “Responsible Restart Ohio.”

With that being said, we are working diligently to secure a safe work environment for our employees and our residents prior to reopening the city building to the public.  I want to thank everyone for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
