Section 2.1 of the Charter of Bay Village and Chapter 105 of the Administrative Code of Bay Village establish four wards in the city. Section 2.1 states: "The fixed boundaries of each ward shall be the shore of Lake Erie on the North and the corporate boundary of the Municipality on the South, and every year following the United States decennial census, the Council shall determine if a change in the easterly and westerly boundaries of each ward is deemed necessary in order to equalize population as nearly as possible."
Following the 2020 United States Census, City Council reviewed the population data and approved a change to the easterly and westerly ward boundaries by passing Ordinance 21-89 on November 29, 2021.
