Mayor's Office


I would like to personally thank you for visiting our city's website. I am honored to serve as Mayor for the City of Newark. I pledge that my staff and I will be good stewards of not only your hard-earned tax dollars, but just importantly good stewards of your trust. My administration is committed to the success of our businesses and families who live in our city. We are proud of our community and the residents who live here!

My administration and I are here to provide customer service to the citizens of Newark. One way to accomplish this is to provide City Government information using the internet, essentially keeping City Hall open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our website is meant to be a communication tool to assist with questions in regards to contact information, different roles and responsibilities of our city departments, and to give up-to-date information on current and upcoming events.

Please do not hesitate to contact my office at 740-670-7510 if I can be of further assistance.

Thank you for visiting!
