Bucyrus Mayor Jeff Reser's Round Table discussions are focused on topics that make the City of Bucyrus a great place to live, work and raise families. Mayor Reser will have special guests on the show that will have valuable information about Bucyrus.


Bucyrus has been partnering with ODOT to rebuild our streets and pave more roads together. Your Street Levey Tax Dollars allows us to use ODOT’s Small Cities Grant. The grant is 80 % funded by ODOT and 20% funded by the local city. It is this partnership that helped provide our beautiful Downtown Sandusky Avenue and is rebuilding Plymouth Street. The partnership between Bucyrus and ODOT is making Bucyrus a much better city.

    Crawford County Land Bank


    The Crawford County Land Bank will be working to help return vacant, low value properties to productive use. This involves acquiring properties and sometimes managing the demolition of unwanted, blighted residential structures. The land bank will not seek to hold properties for extended periods of time but can transfer land to interested and eligible landowners.

    Currently, the Crawford County Land Bank is working to acquire blighted, vacant homes that have been recommended for demolition, using funding provided by a grant from the State of Ohio. We need to have 35 vacant homes in our possession by May 18, 2017 in order to continue to qualify for the full amount of the grant funding. We can receive properties by the Tax Foreclosure process and donations. At this time, it would be beneficial if any property owner would like to donate an unwanted, low value residential property to the land bank for demolition. Please contact Barb McCullough, manager at 419-562-7861 or send a message for further information.

    Street Closings

    Safety, Streets


    8-29-2018: SR 98 (from SR 4 (Sandusky Ave) to US 30) will be closed to truck traffic for the remaining duration of the project (City Approved as of 8/15/18). Contractor will maintain this section for local traffic only. The following detour will be used to reroute traffic: Signed detour route: SR 98 West to US 30 West, US 30 West to SR 4 South. -Tentatively beginning curb installation

    Elite Excavation will soon begin the long-awaited rebuilding of Plymouth Street which includes new curbs, sidewalks along with storm water and sewer separation. They will be bringing in equipment the week of June 11th and begin construction the week of June 18, 2018. The total project is planned to be completed by October.  Traffic will be maintained in one direction on Plymouth Street during the construction process and we expect Irving Street to see more traffic because of the restrictions for Plymouth Street.  

    Please be aware that beginning June 18, 2018, on-street parking on East Irving Street will be temporarily eliminated until the Plymouth Street project is finished in the fall.  Please make arrangements to park in your driveways or side streets during the project.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  This will be a bit of a challenge for all of us who live in the Plymouth Street/Irving Street area but it will be worth it!

    Thanks for your patience.

    Transparency In City Government


    Fellow Residents of Bucyrus:

    Thursday was an historic day in Bucyrus.  Transparency in local government is here to stay!  I led the effort to open our city's finance to you the taxpayer by being one of the very first municipalities in the state to sign up for   I met with Ohio State Treasurer, Josh Mandel on September 24 in Columbus for the announcement.  Just go to and click on the "Local Gov and Schools" tab in the upper right hand corner.  Enter "Bucyrus" to view our city's checkbook and see how we spend your tax dollars.

    Thanks to City Auditor Joyce Schifer for providing support to Treasurer Mandel's office during the implementation of the program.  Joyce's support was critical in making Bucyrus a leader in government transparency.
