Mayor's Greeting

mayorGreetings and welcome to the City of Marietta website. We hope you will find the website informative. We hope that the site provides a good overview of municipal services and operations. I had the pleasure to serve as Mayor of Marietta from 1992-2003. I appreciate the confidence the citizens of this great river town had for me by re-electing me for another term in office.

There are many wonderful attractions our beautiful river city has to offer our citizenry and visitors throughout the year. Here are just a few: The Marietta Aquatic Center, annual boat races, multiple golf courses, bike trails, and our storied Sternwheel Festival held each September. Remember, these are just a few of the attractions our historic city has to offer everyone. Please utilize the "History" icon to learn more about our great city. Lastly, I must recommend to our citizens and visitors the fine restaurants our town has to offer. Even the most challenging of palates will find fine cuisine in Marietta.

On behalf of all of the wonderful employees of our fine city, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our website,, and the homepage for the Office of the Mayor. Please call my office if I can be of further assistance. We look forward to meeting you in Marietta, The Pioneer City.

Joe Matthews, Mayor
