To:  Downtown Business District Merchants and Residents

Dear Friends,

You have most likely heard about the upcoming event on Saturday, June 6th at 1 pm which will be held to honor the memory of George Floyd and protest racism in our society.  We welcome the protestors and honor the First Amendment right of assembly and peaceful protest and we ask that all participants be respectful of everyone involved so as to honor the memory of Mr. Floyd.   We are encouraged that the surrounding area has seen similar protests without incident and we expect the same for Bucyrus on Saturday.  Recent events have taken place in Tiffin, Fostoria, Mansfield, Marion, and Sandusky—all peacefully held by small and large groups alike.  Our Police Department has been working hard to protect all those who will attend and have met with all county law enforcement agencies to ensure a peaceful event.

The event is scheduled to begin at 1 pm at Millennium Park with speakers and will then participants will march through downtown to Liberty Street.  Chief Koepke and I will be in attendance.  Members of our Safety Forces will be visible as well.  We ask that you remove any planters or signs from your sidewalks on Saturday morning.   

Please contact me if you have any questions or comments.



Jeff Reser, Mayor

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.
