The Village of Lewisburg was recently awarded a 1.3 million dollar, thirty year interest free loan for improvements to our Wastewater Treatment facility, located adjacent to the Village Park.
The plant was originally constructed in the early 1940’s and then reconstructed in 1987. Over a period of years the Ohio EPA has instituted new rules and regulations and we need to comply, thus the reason for the improvements.
It takes a Village!
Excellence in public service and government is not just the responsibility of Village employees. Residents play a vital role in strengthening our Village through their service. Lewisburg residents have the opportunity to make a significant impact on local government by volunteering their time, energy, experience, and expertise as a member of one of our local boards or commissions. Boards and commissions may be fiduciary, regulatory, policy-setting, or advisory in nature, but in all instances, the contributions the members make to the community is invaluable.

In 2007, the Village of Lewisburg adopted a charter form of government. The charter form of government is permitted under the Ohio Constitution and requires a two-step process. First, the residents of Lewisburg must elect a Charter Commission. Once elected, the Charter Commission has one year to prepare and submit to the voters a proposed charter. If the charter is adopted, it becomes the basic framework of government for the municipality. Although all municipalities in Ohio enjoy Home Rule, a charter allows the elected representatives of the residents of Lewisburg to govern with considerably more flexibility than is allowed under Ohio statutes.
