The City wants to offer an alert system that would notify City residents of emergency situations. While the City looks for a long term solution, we encourage residents to sign up for the EMA weather alerts. EMA Director Rick McCoy said his system could be used to alert residents of things like a “boil water advisory” until the City gets their own system. To sign up for EMA alerts, visit vanwertema.com, click the “weather” link at the top, and click the “nixle” graphic on the right side of the page. You will then have the option to sign up for text alerts, email alerts, or both.
Welcome to the City Of Van Wert, Ohio!
Van Wert, located in the Midwest heartland, is poised for the future. Industrial and commercial development sites are available with full city services. Supporting our future growth is a new housing development on the southwest side of town. This is located within walking distance to all three public schools. Augmenting our educational facilities is the Brumback Library. The Brumback was the first public library in the United States and is ranked one of the nation’s best libraries.
Our state of the art educational facilities include a professionally managed Performing Arts Center, featuring renowned entertainment throughout the season.
For those students or adults who choose to enter the workforce, or that desire enhanced training, Vantage Career Center offers a wide range of technical training programs addressing the country wide need for skilled employees.
Van Wert is a great place to raise a family. We are very proud of the many civic organizations like Main Street, Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Chamber of Commerce for the many volunteer hours associated with vast number of events that are offered each year.
Additionally, Van Wert offers many opportunities for integration into the community through memberships in one of the many service organizations, such as, Rotary, Optimist, and the Van Wert Service Club. The YMCA, YWCA, and many houses of worship in the community all contribute to the growth of health and spiritual values within our youth.
