                      Welcome to The Village of Payne Website

         The Village of Payne is a warm welcoming community of 1194 residents. Though we are a small rural Village in Northwest Ohio, we have much to offer.

         Payne is a close knit community with conservative values, reflective of our excellent Schools, Churches, Park, Library, The Rock, Youth Center and Businesses.

          I would like to invite you to come and experience the Village of Payne, with our Hometown Atmosphere and a Wonderful Safe Place to Raise Your Family.

          Economic Devolopment is important to the Village and we are excited about the growth opportunities we could provide to new businesses and industries. Our dedicated local government officials look forward to future growth, while still maintaining our small town charm. We are located at the intersection of SR 49, SR 500 and SR 613. We are 7 miles from SR 24, 9 miles from SR 30 and Norfolk Southern Railroad crosses thru the Village. Come explore your business opportunities with our local government.

           Your concerns are my concerns, please feel free to contact me for any reason.Thank you for visiting our website and have a blessed day.

                              Mayor Steve Wobler
