Business to Host Re-Opening Ceremony PDF E-mail

WilkieshopA long-time West Carrollton business, Wilkie’s Auto Service, has moved and will host a grand re-opening ceremony at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 13. Wilkie’s Auto Service, now located at 347 W. Central Ave., has moved about one mile from its former location. According to owner Dave Berger and his wife Angelia, Wilkie's has been in the West Carrollton area for more than 20 years.

“The company was actually started in 1971 by Harry Wilson as Wilson & Cooper Garage and was located on North Walnut Street, said Angelia Berger. “In 1972, it switched to WC Mobile and moved to South Alex Road where it stayed until the early 90's,” she said. The company spent two years in Miamisburg and returned to West Carrollton in the mid-90s to its former location at 429 E Dixie Dr., where it was located until November 2014.

Dave Berger acquired the company in 2006 from Rick Gard. The auto shop completes all types of repairs including engine and wiring repairs, oil changes, tire rotations, mount and balance tires, window regulators, and brakes and brake lines.

Grants Help Fund Park Improvements PDF E-mail

playground design 2Since 2009, the city of West Carrollton parks and recreation department has received $109,846 in grants for improvements to the city’s playgrounds and public spaces.

Just this week, the city learned that it will receive a $16,800 grant from the Montgomery County Solid Waste District’s Recycling Incentive program to replace old playground equipment at Friend Park, located at 155 Squire Street and adjacent to the Great Miami River Recreation Trail.

“Our capital improvements budget has been tight for a long time, but we know that safe, fun playgrounds are important to the quality of life for our residents,” said Christian Mattingly, parks and recreation director. “We do everything that we can to find ways to keep our costs low,” he said.

The parks staff hopes to replace the Friend Park playground with new equipment made of recycled plastics in June.

The city has received at total of more than $83,000 in grants from the Ohio NatureWorks program for playground replacements at the Wilson Park playground in 2009; baseball field renovations at Harmon Park in 2010; and playground improvements at the Soccer Complex in 2013.

Additional grant funding has also been received to offset the cost of replacing hundreds of trees – many that were infected with the Emerald Ash borer.
