Wapakoneta city government’s mission: to cost-effectively improve the health, safety and welfare of residents and respond to their needs.

Welcome!

Welcome to the City of Wapakoneta, Ohio’s Website! Our goal is to share information about our City in a concise and friendly manner, serving mainly residents but also visitors to our fine City.

Wapakoneta is a City of just under 10,000 people that sits near the crossroads of two major highways, US-75 and OH-33. We are part of the Tree City USA program. Wapakoneta is birthplace of Neil Armstrong and home of the Armstrong Air & Space Museum.

A small city with a big heart, Wapakoneta offers a charming downtown with lots to explore, including many antique shops and other specialty stores. We have thriving industrial parks that are growing by leaps and bounds.

But most important are the people. A friendly spirit resides in Wapak, with the community pulling together when needed. A good number of strong service groups exist in Wapakoneta and continually help to make the City a better place. People are greeted with smiles everywhere you go!

To residents, thanks for stopping by and we hope you find what you’re looking for. Let us know how we can improve both the City and this website.

To those outside the area, if you haven’t visited Wapakoneta yet, stop by sometime! We think you’ll be glad you did.

Door-to-Door Sales

If you are planning to conduct business door-to-door remember to obtain a permit from City hall allowing you to do so. This law was passed due to the rise in complaints by the public regarding not only people selling items but the aggressive tactics and manner in which some salespeople use.

“Doxo” – ATTENTION TO ALL RESIDENTS!!!

It has been brought to our attention that during an online search to pay their bill, some residents have found themselves on a third-party website “Doxo”. While this is a legitimate company it is in no way affiliated with the City of Wapakoneta. This company will charge a fee, and in most cases, make a late payment on your account. If you want to pay your utility bill online you can use our official website and auto pay is available as well.

The Fire Department is taking Applications for Full-Time Firefighter II/Paramedic for more information please stop by City Hall.
