The Village is encouraging feedback on these recommendation from residents to shape the future of Poland.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Update/Response:

Citizens of Poland Village, we find ourselves as Ohioans and as a nation at risk of a pandemic the likes of which none of us have seen in our lifetimes. We will continue to keep you informed to the best of our abilities through these very trying times and we will ultimately get through this together as a community.

At this time Poland Village Hall, located at 308 S Main St. Poland, OH 44514, will be closed to the public effective Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 until further notice. Village staff will still be expected to report to work and the office administration will be expected to answer phone calls and emails during normal operating hours. The Violations Bureau will now be implementing a 30-day payment extension. Payments will be accepted over the phone with a credit card or certified checks and money orders may be mailed via the U.S. postal service. Any questions regarding impounded vehicles should be directed to the police non-emergency phone number. Arrangements can be made for the release of vehicles with advanced payment via credit card or certified check. Signage will be posted on the building entrance indicating these changes. The Street Department has been instructed to clean and sanitize Village Hall as much as possible in the coming days. Other options will also be explored in terms of doing a more elaborate deep clean of the facility.

Village Council’s special meeting that is scheduled for Wednesday, March 18th, at 7:00PM will still go on as planned at Village Hall. Social distancing accommodations will be made. Village officials will begin to pursue other means of telecommunication or streaming for future regularly scheduled and special meetings of Council in accordance with state and federal orders and laws.

The Mayor will establish an Emergency Preparedness Team to collect up-to-date, factual information and formulate response options to the ever-changing situations regarding this virus and its impact on the health and safety of our Village staff and our community. The team will be comprised of Mayor Sicafuse, Police Chief Russ Beatty, Fire Chief Chip Comstock, Solicitor Jay Macejko, President of Council J. Michael Thompson, and Councilman Anthony Lattanzio.

The police department will continue daily operations. A search is now underway to obtain additional safety equipment for officers. All police reports will be taken over the department’s non-emergency number. Citizens should still use 9-1-1 for emergencies.

The Village website and social media platforms will be utilized to keep the public as up to date as possible regarding CDC guidelines and best practices, as well as changing local, state, and federal policies.

We will get through this together as a community. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit www.coronavirus.ohio.gov or call the coronavirus hotline at 1-833-427-5634.


The Village of Poland

"Proud Past, Promising Future"

The Village of Poland is located within the northwestern portion of Poland Township. The 2010 census set the population of the Village at 2,555. Poland Village was incorporated on August 7, 1866, its form of government being established by the Ohio Revised Code. The Village is governed by the Mayor, six members of council. Public officials are elected for four-year terms. The Fiscal Officer, Solicitor, Street Commissioner, Police Chief (Village Marshall), Street Tree Commissioner, Zoning Administrator, and the eight boards which involve citizens are appointed by the Mayor with the consent of Council. The Engineer is hired on a contractual basis by council.

Poland Village Council meets on the first and third Tuesdays of September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, and May as well as the third Tuesdays of June, July, and August at 7:30 pm. at the Village Town Hall, 308 South Main Street.

One of the most challenging areas for local government is that of zoning. A comprehensive zoning plan was adopted by council in 1978. Zoning issues are considered by the Planning Commission, Design Review Board, Exterior Maintenance Board, and the board of Zoning Appeals. These boards all involve citizens in addition to a member of council.

The Forest Board, which oversees the Poland Municipal Forest, the Hine Memorial Board, which oversees the Village Green and Church Cemetery also involve citizen volunteers in conjunction with a member of council.
