As of 11/16/2020, the City Building will be locked until further notice. This is an attempt to keep all of our city workers, along with the citizens of Martins Ferry healthy during this new COVID-19 surge in the area. Payments can be placed in the drop box on the corner of 5th Street and Walnut, as they have been in the past. They can also still be made through our third party website and through the mail. Contractors Licenses’ or Building Permits can be obtained by calling 740-633-6151 and someone can meet you outside. Thank you for your understanding and sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
