About Us

Charming Small-Town Feel. Modern Big-City Amenities.

The City of Delaware is a family-oriented community that blends a traditional hometown atmosphere with a modern, independent spirit.

We've been around since 1808, have a population of 38,000 and are the county seat for one of the fastest growing counties in Ohio. We have 24 parks, 20 miles of trails, a golf course, an urban forest consisting of more than 15,000 trees, a state of the art Community Center YMCA and the Ironman 70.3 Ohio competition.

Plus, we have everything from unique restaurants and microbreweries to coffee shops and bakeries, boutiques to antiques, and farmer's markets to live music. We're also close to major retail shopping, malls, outlets, and a short drive to sports venues, OSU, and arts programming in Columbus.

Employee Testimonials

I love working here in the IT department because I get to experience all aspects of the City. From working on the police cruiser laptops to turning the big knobs at the water plant, there's lots of diversity. That’s what makes working here interesting. I go home having learned more than anywhere else!
