Welcome to the Official Web Page for the City of Wellston, Ohio

The phone lines to the water department are working now.  384-2720.  Thank you for your patience.

FYI

Just to clarify what was reported…..Council voted to vacate 10 FEET of the alley where Taco Bell is going in. This is the same 10 feet that was being used by KFC as part of their parking lot. The good news is, Taco Bell will be coming to Wellston SOON !!!!! A big thank you to George Jacubec for his help in doing hours of research to get this worked out

There are many rumors about the State Route 93 project. The state will be paving it as planned. If you have any questions, call the Mayor’s office at 384-2720. We are very thankful this will happen !!!! Thank you for your help Ryan Smith and Vaughn Wilson!!
