Service Department Response to COVID-19

State of Emergency

In our efforts to better protect our Service Department employees and their families the following changes will be made in accordance to Governor DeWine’s directives and the orders of Dr. Amy Action.

Effective immediately all non-essential staffing in my Building Department, Service Department and Water Department are equipped to work from home until further notice. We have staggered schedules for personnel to work on site at their departments minimally and check for certain items pertaining to our residents and everyday business, once those items are taken care of they are to return home and work from there. I am asking for your patience as you may not get a call back immediately if you have concerns with any of my departments. As another point of contact with the City we have the ability to use our website under “report a concern” and those concerns track right to emails where we can get some concerns quicker than what a phone call might take right now.

You can also contact any of my departments at the following email addresses and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Building Department –  

Service Department –

Water Department –

If you are in need of a building permit please go to our website under the building department and see our temporary protocol for obtaining a permit for the unforeseeable future.

Our Water Plant Operators will continue working 24/7, as well, our Service Department will be working smaller staggered shifts 5 days a week.

If you have concerns or comments of any of my departments please contact myself at

Kind Regards,

Paul Anzalone

Director of Public Service

Recycling information

Combine the following five core items in your curbside recycling container. Do not bag them. No other items should be placed in your recycling. And when in doubt, throw it out.


  1. CANS: Empty and rinse.
  2. CARTONS: Empty and rinse. Replace the cap -- it’s too small to be recycled by itself!
  3. GLASS: Empty and rinse.
  4. PAPER & BOXES: Flatten cardboard items, like cereal boxes, to save space.
  5. PLASTIC BOTTLES & JUGS: Empty and rinse. Replace the cap.
