2019 Staff Directory

Berlin City Hall is located downtown, on the square.

History: Prior to 1928 city hall was located in various downtown buildings on their second floor offices including above the First National Bank in 1904.

In 1928 it was deemed appropriate to build a municipal building on the spot where the then current firehouse stood on Market Square . The current City Hall building was built and dedicated with much fanfare, including a song written about it in 1929. The original building had a tower on the south end but due to an engineering mistake it was deemed unsafe and removed in 1942. It housed city offices, the police department and the fire department. In 1982/83 the fire department moved to its own building and the remaining space was remodeled into more space for the remaining departments. The auditorium on the second floor was remodeled to hold the new Council Chambers. The building has received subsequent upgrades since then. It currently houses the police department, city offices and various department offices.

City Hall is located at 108 North Capron Street
