Mayor's Welcome

To Our Guests,

As Mayor of this fine community, I would like to welcome you to our online presentation of why we have come to call New Bremen our home.

While browsing through our site you will see glimpses of our beautifully restored downtown, that includes a 90-seat state of the art Theater. You won't find many Villages that can match our downtown's appeal.

Our commercial opportunities will be very exciting for you to work, or start a business here. Our economic development group is ready to show how our low cost of utilities and quality of life, can make doing business in New Bremen the right choice for you.

Visit our school section to explore the excellent school system that we have to offer in New Bremen. Check out the state report cards, you will see that we are making the grade!

Finally I would like to thank you for finding us on the web. And if the tour has enticed you to find out more about New Bremen, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information. Because we truly believe that we are "One of Ohio's best kept secrets".
