Important Notice About Heartbleed Bug 

In response to the recent release of the "Heartbleed" bug, the City has taken the industry recommended steps to mitigate this vulnerability.  "Heartbleed" is a powerful vulnerability that allows attackers to steal un-encrypted data from encrypted sites.

The "Heartbleed" bug was announced Monday night on April 7th.  The City servers that were susceptible to this attack were patched early Tuesday morning on April 8th starting at 2:30 am.   

We have taken the appropriate actions on all City websites to make sure that no further exploit of "Heartbleed" is possible at this time. 

While we have no reason to believe anything was compromised, we are recommending all users to change their passwords on all City websites, as well as any other websites they visit online.

Wadsworth, Ohio

The City of Wadsworth offers the quaintness of a small town, coupled with the sophistication of a community that is progressive enough to offer its own municipally-owned electric utility and high-speed internet and cable services. Residents' activities center around the strong Wadsworth City Schools, which are rated 'Excellent with Distinction' in the State; churches; and numerous civic organizations, including a very active Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Wadsworth organization. The City is a delightful mix of families who have been part of the community for several generations, younger families who have chosen to 'move back home' to Wadsworth, and new families who have only recently discovered this special city.
