Council Member John Heitger

Raised in Massillon, I graduated from Perry High School and studied electronic engineering at Stark Technical College.  I worked 36 years in management, running several supermarkets and 8 years in marketing/advertising.  My wife, Debby, and I moved to Smithville in 2012.  We started and ran Medley on Main in downtown Smithville.  We decided to retire and travel.  Debby and I have 4 sons.

This is my second year on council as the Streets and Sidewalk Liaison and I am the Chair of the Planning Commission.  You may contact me at with any questions or concerns.
