Koomar to seek re-election in Bay Village
It has been a great honor to serve as your Mayor the past five years. As you may know this is an election year and I have decided to seek re-election. I will be on the ballot Nov. 2 and hope that I have earned your support for another term.
I am excited about the prospect of having an opportunity to build upon our many successes. We have built an outstanding administrative team which has done a tremendous job managing city services while landing significant grants to improve livability for our residents.
Here are a few highlights:
- Secured over $23 million in external funding for road and infrastructure projects, including the new Bay Village Library branch and the privately funded Bay Creek residences.
- Secured over $2.1 million in grant funding for a variety of projects including the new Cahoon Basin trail, improvements to historical buildings, recreational enhancements, and equipment for the safety forces.
- Demonstrated fiscal responsibility – produced balanced budgets and maintained Aa1 Bond Rating.
- Completed the Cahoon Park lakefront master plan. This is a wonderful opportunity to improve resident access to Lake Erie, while controlling erosion and maintaining the park for future generations.
Bay Village is a special city made up of wonderful people, great parks, quality schools, and lake front beauty. We are fully committed to maintaining its integrity. Continued enhancement of the livability and special nature of our town through further investments in our parks, lakefront, infrastructure and business districts will be at the forefront for the future. It has become very clear during the pandemic that our residents enjoy our parks more than ever. Investment in our parks is an investment in our health and happiness.

Mayor Paul Koomar
