Welcome to Bellbrook!

The City of Bellbrook was settled in 1816 and was named for one of its founders, Stephen Bell. The City first attained a population of over 5,000 in 1970 when Bellbrook annexed a large part of western Sugarcreek Township. This led to official city status in 1974. The current census numbers residents at approximately 7,000 today. Bellbrook is unique because it provides a full range of services without a local income tax, being one of about 4 of Ohio’s over 250 cities without an income tax.

Bellbrook Receives Improved ISO Rating

October 14, 2015 - In September, the Insurance Services Office (ISO) issued a Public Protection Classification Summary Report based on a review of the fire suppression capabilities of the Bellbrook Fire Department.  Because of the positive report, ISO has given Bellbrook a Community Classification of 2.  ISO classifications are used by insurance companies when pricing residential and commercial property insurance.

ISO has graded 48,754 fire departments across the nation and less than 3% have earned a Community Classification of 2 or 1.  The last review was performed by ISO in 2007 where the Fire Department received a Community Classification of 3.  This improved rating is a direct result of the Fire Department's efforts including training, inspections and education.  According to the summary, "In general, the price of fire insurance in a community with a good PPC grade is substantially lower than in a community with a poor PPC grade, assuming all other factors are equal."
