Mayor’s message

Hello to everyone who lives, works or visits in Canal Fulton. I hope and pray every day for you all to have the best experience possible during your time here. My commitment eight years ago when I first became the Mayor was to improve communication with our citizens and the community as a whole. As a result, we merged our quarterly newsletter with Lawrence Township and the Village of Clinton. “Your Community News” gives us the opportunity to promote numerous activities to the entire Northwest School District which the bond that unites us all.

Secondly, we started a monthly television “This Month in Canal Fulton” through MCTV. Each month we do a thirty minute program to promote and inform the community about upcoming projects. The program is replayed every day at different time throughout western Stark County and the MCTV viewing area of Wayne County.

Next, I posted my phone number 330.949.3520 on the digital message board at the Canal Fulton Safety Center to insure you have access to me to express any concerns, questions or compliments you may have. Please let me know if you are having any issues that I need to be made aware of to better serve you.

Finally, you are obviously viewing our updated city website. Our goal is to make it more user friendly and informative. The improvements enables us to highlight conveniences we’ve been working on in our Finance Department, Utility Department and Parks and Recreation Department. 

Canal Fulton is truly blessed to function through the selfless sacrifice of hundreds of individuals. These boards, committees, commissions and non-profit organizations provide for the needs of every person in need in our community. At the risk of missing any of them I want to list all of them. I believe, this list epitomizes the God inspired faith that exists in Canal Fulton to be our brother’s keeper: Board of Zoning Appeals, Planning Commission, Historical Preservation Commission, Parks and Recreation Boards, Civil Service Commission, Olde Canal Days Festival Committee, Canal Fulton VFW Post 9795, Canal Fulton Lions Club, Canal Fulton Rotary Club, Bountiful Gifts Charities, Canal Fulton Community Cupboard, Luke 19 Charities, Northwest Stark Senior Citizens Center, Canal Fulton Heritage Society and the 12 Days of Christmas Committee.

Joe Schultz-Mayor of Canal Fulton
