Council Meetings

Village Council meetings are held the second and fourth Monday of each month at 7:30 PM in Council Chambers of Town Hall at 103 West Market Street. The public is welcome to attend meetings or to provide comments on any village related matter. The building is handicapped accessible.

COVID Protocols: The Council Chambers do not provide sufficient room for social distancing and therefore all Council and Committee meetings are being held virtually. If you have a question or comment for a meeting, please email it to mayor@baltimoreohio.org by noon on the day of the meeting and include in the subject “Public Comment” and the meeting date. Your email will be distributed, made part of the meeting minutes, and read during the public comment period of the meeting. All meetings are live-streamed to the Village YouTube page at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsKUv3GgnaRXXWkTJB06vJg

Beginning with the April 26, 2021 Committee and Council meetings, residents can join the meeting to listen and participate in public comment. Visitors joining the meeting:

  • must keep microphones muted and cameras off unless they are speaking during visitor comments;
  • must identify themselves by name and address to speak during visitor comments;
  • may turn their camera on when speaking during visitor comments; and
  • disrupting the meeting (including having background noise and not muting the microphone) will be removed from the virtual meeting.
