As Mayor of Wilder, Kentucky, I would like to welcome you. Wilder has always taken pride in providing the best possible services to its citizens and businesses at an economical cost. In keeping with this tradition, I hope this website will provide immediate access to current and valuable information concerning the City of Wilder for all readers and users.

Wilder is a unique town with a mixture of rural, suburban and urban type settings. Our business community is growing and consists of everything from heavy industrial users to professional offices and commercial attractions. Wilder has a unique quality in terms of location. There are major interstates that are readily accessible in all directions. Downtown Cincinnati is only 5 minutes away and the Northern Kentucky Greater Cincinnati International Airport is only 20 minutes away. Wilder borders one of the finest and fastest growing universities in the state; Northern Kentucky University.This makes Wilder a great place to locate your business or home.

Wilder is also a great place to live. As one of the suburban bedroom communities of Cincinnati, Ohio we have a variety of housing types and styles to fit practically every need. One of the best reasons to live in Wilder is our low property tax rate. Wilder has one of the lowest property tax rates in Northern Kentucky.

As you take a look at our web page, you will see the advantages of being part of the City of Wilder. The city provides all essential services with an excellent group of staff members from administrative staff to fire, police and public works. The city also offers one of the finest recreational facilities in the region at Frederick’s Landing. A beautiful riverside park with one of the best boat launch ramps in the area.

We are also proud to recognize the Yellow Dot Program introduced by the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety. This program alerts first responders (Police or Fire Department personnel) at crash scenes of critical information that could save a life.

I certainly hope this web page provides you with information about our fine city. If you should ever have any questions or need more information, my door is always open. Feel free to contact any member of the City of Wilder staff or me anytime.

Thank you,

Mayor Stanley Turner
