City of Bay Village acts to limit spread of coronavirus

As you know, a national emergency has been declared by the federal and state governments to combat the coronavirus. Bay Village city services such as trash and recycling will continue unless otherwise notified. My administration is committed to working with health authorities to implement practices on a local level.

Effective Saturday, March 14, public access has been limited to certain Bay Village municipal buildings. The Dwyer Center, Community Gym and the Recreation Department have been closed to the public and programming has been suspended. All non-essential meetings at all city buildings have been cancelled. City Hall is open primarily for Building Department related matters.

All departments are staffed and are available by phone or email. We would appreciate it if sewer payments are placed in the drive-through payment box at the exit of city hall or if paying by credit card, please call 440-871-2200.

Changes to city services and buildings will be in effect through Sunday, April 12. The city will continue to follow guidance from federal and state health officials and will reevaluate the above closures and suspension of services based on information received from these authorities.

Our community services team has been in discussion with the Bay Village clergy and community groups on how we can collectively and safely help those at risk and our seniors.

Please review the following coronavirus prevention tips:

Health authorities believe that the number of cases will continue to grow and elderly populations with chronic and immune health issues are at the greatest risk. Recommendations that limit contact and keep sufficient space between others, along with proper hand washing hygiene, are essential to controlling the coronavirus.

It’s more important than ever for residents to be signed up for the city’s electronic communications. This will allow us to communicate with you in a timely manner. Ready Notify/CodeRed is how we communicate on emergent matters. You can choose to receive your alerts by e-mail, text, and phone. There is a registration link on the city's website,, or you may call us at 440-871-2200 and we’ll send you the form.

We appreciate your patience and understanding on the suspension of services. We realize that these changes will create hardships for many of you, but the public health of our community outweighs these inconveniences. We are blessed to have a number of residents who have reached out and are willing to help others in our community.
