“As Welcome As Flowers That Bloom In The Spring”

The Icon recently carried an article on planned street work along Ada’s east side; a reminder that flowers are not the only thing appearing in Ada when the weather warms.

This is a tradition in the village going back to the early 1900’s when the Village Council contracted for the paving of the community’s streets. The pictures here are for work on North and South Gilbert Street.
