President Jill McKelvey presented a plaque to him on Monday December 21, 2020. The plaque reads, "Presented to

Learn more about staying safe this Halloween below.
Pictured below are the new pine benches and coat rack/shelf that area resident Joe Smucker made out of the Village Christmas Tree that stood on the south side of West Liberty's Town Hall for nearly 6 decades.
The plaque on the bench reads, "In honor of the West Liberty Business Association and the men who planted the Norway Spruce tree to be decorated during the Christmas season in 1963."
The bench and coat rack/shelf are on display for public viewing in the Village Clerk's Office in the Town Hall.
With the uncertainty of COVID-19 and the unknown timeline of returning back to some sense of normalcy, the Village of West Liberty Council has made the difficult decision to cancel the Village Fire Sales/Yard Sales that was scheduled for May 16, 2020 out of an abundance of caution for everyone.
We realized that this event brings in numerous people in from all over and felt that could affect all of the hard work you all of you have done with social distancing and didn't want to put anyone's health in jeopardy. I have reached out to the Business Association about a possible make up date for later this summer and that will be discussed but in these uncertain times we aren't sure of a good and proper date for a possible reschedule.
Thank you and stay safe and healthy!

Effective 3/16/2020, I have ordered the Village of West Liberty Clerks' Office and Fire Department to be closed to public access to prevent the spread of COVID-19. You can still drop off payments at the drop box on the side of the building or pay online.
If you have any questions or need to speak to the Village Clerk, you can call 937-465-2716, and if you need to contact the Fire Department for non-emergency business calls, you can call 937-465-3989.
Thank you for your assistance and sorry for any inconvenience.

It is with great sadness that I must report the passing of two longtime Village of West Liberty public servants in the past week.
Robert "Bob" Foughty whom served on 40 years with the West Liberty Fire Department and was an original member of West Liberty EMS during its founding.
Francis "Fran" Salyers whom served 30+ years with the West Liberty Fire Department. Fran retired as an Assistant Chief. He also worked for the Village of West Liberty 23 years and served several years on the West Liberty Board of Public Affairs.
Let us remember both of these gentlemen, the sacrifices and commitment they made. Both served the Village of West Liberty with honor and we as a Village are forever grateful for them! Godspeed to the both of them!
