A message from the Mayor...

I would like to thank the residents and employees of the City of Bay Village for their compassion and caring for one another during the challenging and recent events that we have all experienced. Our community has come together to embrace one another and support each other.

The city has policies, procedures and training in place to ensure fair and equal treatment for everyone. As we continue to move forward, we do so with tolerance, inclusiveness and respect for others. Below is statement from the Bay Village Police Department posted to their Facebook page (Bay Village Police Department).


Paul A. Koomar, Mayor


The Bay Village Police Department members are very much aware of the current unrest throughout our nation. Every American deserves equal treatment in our society. We want you to know that we are committed to the citizens of Bay Village and strive to provide the highest level of Police Service to our residents. We stand in solidarity with you and 100% support your constitutional right to peacefully gather and protest injustice.

We pride ourselves on being professional and hold each other to our Department's core values. We train our officers to be kind and respectful, understanding that we do not know a person's background or past encounters with police. We treat every individual as a person, not just someone we "have to deal with." Each officer has been through several training classes in relation to diversity, such as but not limited to: Policing in the 21st Century, Procedural Justice and Police Legitimacy, Trauma Informed Policing and Crisis Intervention.

The members of the Bay Village Police Department have all taken an oath of office to support the Constitution of the United States. Our job is to dispel fear, not create fear. We are here to serve you. We are here to protect you. We are your Police Department. With all of our respect, thank you for letting us serve you.


Welcome to Bay Village.  We hope you enjoy learning more about the many attributes that make our small town special.  Bay is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Erie. Bay Village is a family-oriented community with excellent schools, many community organizations, scenic parks, green space and walkable neighborhoods that our residents value.  If you like the outdoors, shade trees, and a safe environment, you will find Bay Village attractive.

Consistently rated as one of the top communities in all of Northern Ohio, we strive to provide the best services possible for our residents.  Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can do anything to help you or if you just have a question.  We are here to serve.
