Caito Foods closing May 15th


Last Thursday, the village received the announcment that Caito Foods in our Industrial Park was closing with 62 jobs being lost. The Village and theNewcomerstown CIC have been working on this as more information and some opportunities have arisen.

A meeting was held at themayor's office with many Tuscarawas County officials attending and a plan of action was initiated.
It was noted that two companies have already been brought forward with job opportunities: Quanex IG in Cambridge and Lauren Manufacturing in New Philadelphia. Lauren has 34 openings presently and are looking to hire 36 more in the near future. 
The Ohio Means Jobs organization was contacted yesterday and they will coming to Newcomerstown to meet with the employees in mid April to present all of their resources to help the workers find new jobs. They are hosting a county jobs fair in New Philadelphia on May 11 with 40-60 companies present looking for people to work for them. Spartan Nash, the owners are working to help with this situation also.
if you know of a Caito Foods worker who has been affected by this closure, please share this posting so that are they are made aware of these openings and what's coming in the future to help them. Thank you!!

A Message From The Mayor Pat Cadle


It's March already and Newcomerstown is heading toward Spring.  It has been a very mild winter and no one is complaining about the lack of snow this year.  We have three candidates for the four Council seats available.  Heather Stein-Wells, David Shepherd and Jim Friel all had petitions certified by the County Board of Elections.  If you are still interested in running, you can do so as an Independent as long as your petitions are in by May 1. So far two other residents have expressed interest in running for the Council seats this way.  

There are several ways you can contact the Mayor's Office. You can visit me at 124 W. Church Street above the Police Station. You can call 740-498-6313.  You can leave a message for me if I am not there. There are two Facebook sites you can message, (The Mayor's Office, and the Village of Newcomerstown ) or you can email me at Please contact me if you have concerns or a good idea.   We cannot fix something if we don't know it's broke.  Contact me in one of the ways listed above!
