Deadline to Order Trees: Oct. 11 PDF E-mail

West Carrollton residents can purchase trees and have them planted in their front yards if they place their order by Friday, Oct. 11.

The West Carrollton parks and recreation department sells Flowering Pear and Autumn Blaze Maple trees for $125 through the Tree City USA program.  The trees are approximately 1½ to 2 inches in diameter, or 8 to 10 feet tall, depending on the variety. Parks staff members will plant the trees, in residents’ front yards only, in late fall or early winter.

To purchase a tree, stop by the West Carrollton Civic Center, 300 E. Central Ave., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call (937) 859-5181 x2.

West Carrollton was recognized for its 24th year of participation in the Tree City USA program this April. By maintaining the Tree City USA program, the city recognizes the impact that trees have on communities by filtering the air, reducing heat to homes and buildings, providing a habitat for wildlife, and increasing property values.

City Receives Clean Audit PDF E-mail

An independent audit firm recently released a report of West Carrollton’s financial statements for 2012.

The Certified Public Accountant firm, Plattenburg & Associates, Inc., issued a clean or ‘unqualified’ audit. This is the highest rating a municipality can receive.

“We are extremely proud of our entire staff for the hard work put into achieving these high standards,” said Tom Reilly, West Carrollton’s finance director.

The state of Ohio Auditor’s office has certified the report that covered the city’s $33 million annual budget consisting of 30 funds. The audit was conducted in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and governmental auditing standards issued by the U.S. Comptroller General.

Student Earns Fire Award PDF E-mail

While walking to the buWhite 3s stop on Nov. 2, 2012, Brianna White, age 10, witnessed smoke coming from a neighbor’s home at 233 E. Pease Ave.

She responded by running home and asking her mother to call 9-1-1, which allowed police and fire personnel to respond quickly to the scene and remove the victim from danger.

“Her careful observation and willingness to notify authorities likely saved the life of another citizen of the city of West Carrollton,” according to a proclamation that was read during the Aug. 27 city council meeting. Mayor Jeff Sanner declared the day “Brianna White” day in the city - which also happened to be her 11th birthday.

“Each and every one of us at some point in our lives is going to face a situation where possibly someone else’s life is going to be in balance,” said Interim Fire Chief Chris Barnett. “She did the right thing that day.”
