History of the Village
Older than the state of Ohio, the village of Waynesville offers a fascinating combination of history and culture as it developed in southwestern Ohio. This “Antiques Capital of the Midwest” and “Home of the Ohio Sauerkraut Festival” is a microcosm of our American heritage with its dreams and accomplishments.

It has been brought to my attention that various aggregation providers have been walking door to door to sign customers for electric and gas utilities. We want to remind the residents of Waynesville that the village council has already approved a utility aggregation company for everyone in the village. The approved plan is an opt-out program for all residents. The electric aggregation company selected by the village is Energy Harbor at a rate of .068 cents per kilowatt. The gas aggregation company is Archer Energy at a rate of .5699 per CcF. We ask that you please check your utility bill to verify your status in the village program and that you are receiving these rates. Please click here for the link for more information. These door-to-door utility providers may be sharing incorrect information in an effort to get you to sign with their company. If you would like assistance, please feel free to contact the village government center for help.

There has been an increase in auto thefts in Warren, Montgomery, Clermont, and Clinton Counties over the past several months. A few vehicles have been stolen from the Village of Waynesville and we strongly encourage everyone to lock their vehicles and homes at night and when not in use. A subsequent investigation determined that all these vehicles were unlocked at the point of entry and the vehicle’s keys were left in them. We believe this is a vehicle theft ring out of Dayton and they have taken vehicles from several neighboring jurisdictions.
