Mayor Doyle H. Webster and his wife, LaVonne, have been Springdale residents for nearly 50 years, moving into Springdale in 1964. Mayor Webster first became involved with the City of Springdale in 1970 when he was appointed as the Parks and Recreation Director by then Mayor Ray Norrish. A year later, Doyle was elected to the position of Clerk-Treasurer, which was later changed to Clerk of Council/Finance Director. No matter the title of the position, he found himself re-elected for five (5) additional terms and ultimately served the City in that capacity for a total of twenty-four (24) years. In 1995, Doyle was elected as Springdale’s seventh Mayor since the City’s incorporation in 1959. At the conclusion of his current term, Doyle will have served the City of Springdale as an elected official for forty-four (44) years. In this day and age, that is one significant accomplishment.

Public service contributions aside, Doyle has an almost equally lengthy career in the banking industry. He served as a Vice President at PNC Bank, formerly Central Trust Bank, for over thirty eight (38) years, retiring in 1995. Doyle later accepted a position with Northside Bank and Trust, working an additional five (5) years as a Vice President and advisor to the bank’s owner before retiring for a second time in 2003.

Doyle and LaVonne raised their daughter, Julie (Matheny), in Springdale and like her parents, Julie is very active in serving the Springdale community at large. Today, the Mayor spends his spare time helping provide effective oversight of City operations, enjoying his family and friends and maintaining the upkeep of several rental properties. He and his family are also avid Cincinnati Reds rooters and frequently travel to other cities to cheer on the home team.
