Members of the Tiffin Tree Commission and city officials spent the day yesterday in Ada at the Recognition Day for Tree City USA. I am not sure what chaos erupted in the city while the top brass was out of town! Mayor Jim Borer, City Administrator Wayne Stephens, Streets and Services supervisor Sue Kuhn, Park Director Steve Dryfuse, as well as several members of the commission and key workers in the tree and beautification programs were in Ada. After an excruciatingly early start, we were at the Ohio Northern campus before 8:30, and treated to breakfast there. Ten cities and villages received special recognition in the form of a Growth Award, and showed pictures of the results of their efforts. Ada had a horrendous snow storm in 2005, and showed a video of the scene on the following day. Several dignitaries of the university and the village also gave remarks. Tiffin was once more recognized as a Tree City USA by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry. This designation is due to ongoing efforts to maintain and improve quality of life in this community through our tree management program. One requirement of the award is for a city to conduct an Arbor Day program, and this year three trees will be planted at Krout elementary school on April 24th, following a program for all the students in the gym at 2 p.m.
