Office of the Mayor

Welcome to our official City of Cambridge Ohio web site!

As Mayor of the City of Cambridge Ohio, I promote honoring our past as we move forward to our exciting future. Taxpayers and employees will be involved in the organization, planning, and implementation of projects to benefit growth and development of the City.

Coming from a small business background, this administration will strongly promote customer service throughout the city. City Services are managed to insure they improve municipal operating efficiency in serving the taxpayers. We promote teamwork and safety to instill a high degree of pride among citizens and City employees.

As a lifelong resident of the area, I feel honored to fulfill a passion to lead our City into positive change. The originality of the new Dickens’ display downtown to our one of a kind park system, the City of Cambridge is on the move. Our location at the crossroads of I-70 and I-77 create ideal opportunities for industrial and business development. Our City is enhanced by its rural appeal and its accessibility to recreation, as a result Cambridge has a great deal to offer our citizens as well as our out-of-town guests.

Our City website is a helpful tool to obtain information about activities within our area and it’s also a good source to learn about our city government. Please feel free to e-mail, write or stop by City Hall to make suggestions or ask questions. We look forward to sharing our ideas with you.

Tom Orr, Mayor
City of Cambridge, Ohio
