Mayor Retterer's State of the Village address, January 2024

On January 2, Mayor Dave Retterer made his annual report to the Village of Ada Council, as required by Ohio Revised Code - Title VII Municipal Corporations - Section 733.41. The following is his prepared speech.

The Village of Ada is composed of a variety of industries, businesses, people, of churches and opportunities. These comprise one of the many strengths of this village. An international company that could have expanded to a collection of other places chose to expand in Ada. A couple of Ada High School and University of Findlay college friends have chosen to invest in properties in Ada to build a brewery. Each of two couples from the region purchased an existing business and put their stamp on it. The pandemic caused a lot of problems for residents and the village itself. It appears that 2024 can be much better.
