Mayor and Village Council
Mayor Larry Haver
WELCOME FROM THE MAYOR
Hicksville, founded in 1836, is a community that has continually grown over the years. We have a beautiful downtown area with businesses that serve the needs of the village without having to travel beyond our borders. The village has everything you could need from auto parts to autos, hardware to furniture, flowers to food. Hicksville is home to numerous churches, banks, civic and social organizations. The village parks offer a wide variety of activities and facilities to please everyone.
We are privileged to have Community Memorial Hospital in our town. It is truly state of the art. The area is also served by Hickory Creek at Hicksville, a 63 bed constant care facility.
We are proud of the Huber Opera House and Civic Center, brought back to its former glory by dedicated volunteers.
Hicksville has a great K-12 Hicksville Exempted Village School on East High Street as well as a newly built Fire Hall on South Main Street next to the Municipal Building.
Hicksville boasts its own Industrial Park, already home to several businesses, and open to new industry.
Hicksville is an amazing community to live in. The citizens of this village have always celebrated good times together and faced hard times together, neighbor helping neighbor. Today, with the future uncertain and unpredictable, you can be assured that Hicksville will not only survive, but thrive. Our motto is “A Proud Past…..A Bright Future."
OFFICE OF THE MAYOR
The mission of the Mayor is to enhance the quality of life in the Village of Hicksville through planning and visionary leadership.
The mayor of a non-charter municipality in Ohio is selected by the voters at the general election in the odd numbered years for a four year term. The mayor presides over all council meetings but has no vote except in the case of a tie. Mayor Haver has been in office since January 2004, and is serving his third term as mayor. He is a member of the Northwest Ohio Mayor and Managers Association. Mayor Haver also serves on the Public Nuisance Board, Water Task Force, and Revolving Loan Committee.
The Mayor and his wife Audrey have 3 children: Mark (Amy) Haver, Hicksville; Gregg (Lori) Haver of Columbus OH; and Stephanie (Rick) Herman of Columbus OH. They are grandparents to Mark & Amy's children Arman (12) and Melika (11), Gregg & Lori's children Kelsey (13), Jenna (11) and Drew (8), and Stephanie & Rick have new twin daughters Nola and Eva.
The Village Council is composed of six members elected at large for overlapping four year terms. The council must elect from its own members a president pro tem who serves a one year term. The president pro tem becomes acting mayor if the elected mayor is unable to perform his duties or is absent from the village. It is usual for council to divide itself into committees to study matters that come before council.
Council meetings are the first and third Mondays at 6:00 PM.
