Clayton Weller
Clayton Weller
August 6, 2020

We are very sorry to inform you that Clayton Weller, who served as Mayor of Sugarcreek for many years, passed away yesterday morning at his home.

It is said that, "The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive." Without a doubt, Clayton was a man who gave. He gave energy, commitment, and inspiration to his family, friends, and to all in the Village of Sugarcreek. He dedicated his career to serving our community and his unwavering positive attitude and desire to help others, even during his darkest hours, has touched us all.

Anyone who knew Clayton knows of his generosity, work ethic, and selflessness. He demonstrated these traits again and again throughout his career. For over 40 years, he tirelessly worked for the Village. He held the positions of Street Department crew member, Street Superintendent, Village Administrator, and Mayor. He was currently a valuable member of the Sugarcreek Village Council.

Clayton will always be remembered for his dedication and love of his hometown. He actively participated in our community events and spent countless hours making sure every detail was carefully planned out. He was instrumental in bringing the Cuckoo Clock to town and in the day to day maintenance required to keep it running smoothly. He expressed many times how much happiness it gave him to see the crowds of people gathered around it.

Clayton's soft-spoken hello and gentle mannerisms had a unique way of making everyone feel welcome. He greeted people with a warm smile and was always there to offer a kind word. No matter the situation, he maintained an upbeat cheerful outlook. He was not just our co-worker but our friend.

No words can sufficiently express our sadness or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with Clayton. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.

Sincerely,
Mayor Jeff Stutzman
Sugarcreek Village Council
And the Village of Sugarcreek personnel

A message from Mayor Jeff Stutzman
March 19, 2020

The Village of Sugarcreek is actively monitoring the COVID-19/Coronavirus situation and taking steps to help keep our community safe, during this uncertain time.

We are closely watching updates from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. We believe that following the health advice from these agencies is the best way to ensure the safety of the residents of Sugarcreek. We will continue to seek guidance from the CDC, WHO, and from our state and county health departments and follow required and recommended policies.

Coronavirus must be taken seriously and I urge the public and business owners to follow the rules and guidelines set in place by Governor DeWine.

Please remember that:

Gatherings of 50 or more people are banned.

All bars and restaurants are closed for eat-in services and are limited to offering delivery and/or take out services only.

All casinos, concert venues, nightclubs, racetracks, gyms, fitness centers and classes, movie theaters and performing art centers are closed to the public.

As mayor, it is my promise to do what is best for the health and safety of our community. We will continue to track this rapidly evolving situation and make adjustments to our safety protocol as needed. We will continue to comply with CDC, state, and Tuscarawas county guidelines.

Our hope is that every citizen will use their good judgement and be conscientious of their actions. This is an unprecedented health challenge, but with everyone working to battle the transmission of COVID-19, Sugarcreek will come through this stronger than ever.

Please stay safe, and healthy,

Mayor Jeff Stutzman

It's the time of the year to prepare, and file income tax forms with Federal, State, and Local tax agencies. The Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) will be administering the collection and processing of our local income tax for individual residents and businesses.

Instead of printing out forms and mailing or faxing, the available E-File in My Accounts makes the process quick and easy. All Village residents 18 and older must file a return if they have taxable income, whether or not they owe any additional tax. Seniors who do not have any taxable income should file a one time Individual Declaration of Exemption. Forms are available at the Village Hall and online at www.ritaohio.com. Customer service representatives can be reached at 1-800-860-7482 to answer any questions.
