Published on May 01, 2017 with No Comments

Mayor Wesley Meiss proclaimed Friday, April 28 as Arbor Day, stating this year is the 23rd year the city has taken part in Arbor Day festivities. Each year the council has a new tree planted. This year the council planted an 8 foot East Bay Holly at city hall.

The mayor also said this will be the 23rd year of being certified as a Tree City.

During the ceremony, Councilwoman Patsy Lunsford suggested the tree be dedicated to late Councilman Lloyd Hinote who participated in Arbor Day the year before.

“He was a dedicated councilperson. He had Milton at heart. He always loved Milton and never wanted to live anywhere else. I think it is very appropriate we dedicate this tree to him for his memory,” said Lunsford. The mayor agreed.
