We are a community that was founded in 1809 by Lancelot Mayes. It is understood from history and believed by our Historical Society that our community's name came from a weed that grew rich in our fields. 

In 1967, the Village of Richfield was formed and incorporated. The Village adopted a Charter, which allowed for the voting of a Mayor and seven council members. As of the 2010 census, we are a community of approximately 3,650 and growing. The community was founded on an agricultural basis. However, as times have changed, we are moving toward a mixed community of residential and commercial development. 

As with our forefathers, it is the hopes of the community to allow for growth but to maintain the rural character and nature that makes the Village of Richfield so unique.

Snow Plowing and mailbox issues

Snow Removal Priorities

Primary streets are plowed first, followed by secondary streets. The first priority is the emergency snow routes and other main collector streets, which connect major sections of the Village to provide access for emergency fire, police, medical services, schools, and commercial businesses or area bus routes. The second priority is the residential streets. During heavy snows secondary streets will only be salted at hills, intersections and turns until the storm passes. Please note that cul-de-sacs are plowed last and that village snowplows are prohibited from plowing driveways or towing private vehicles. All sidewalks adjacent to private property are the responsibility of the property owner as per the Ohio revised Code. After a winter snow event, the Village Service Department, will do their best to assist residents with this snow removal if it is not done already. Snow placed in driveways by Village plows is the property owners’ responsibility for removal. Snow from a private driveway may not be placed on or pushed across a Village street. The Village will only clean snow within the confines of curb line to curb line of a street. This priority system keeps open the roads that serve the greatest number of people.

At times, heavy slush discharged from a plow will knock down a . Most mailboxes, if properly placed and installed, will withstand heavy slush. The Village will NOT be responsible for damage done to mailboxes knocked down by heavy snow or slush. Before winter please make sure that your mailbox is properly fastened to the pole. 

Your assistance is needed in removing the snow from in front of your mailbox.  The extreme ice and snow packed around the mailbox prevents Village trucks from removing the snow without causing damage to the mailbox.
