AEP Tree Trimming


AEP (therefore,Asplundh) will be in town for utility line clearance for 3-6 weeks.  They are working on the list of trees affected and are supposed to bring it into the office so we know what's going on.  Trees marked with yellow dots are trims, red x are removals.



The village office has a few pieces of literature describing the process and proper tree placement.  They are available for inspection at the village offices. It is important to remember that AEP's goal is to keep trees and other obstructions clear of their line right-of-way, not to prune and shape.  



Lima Avenue Project




The East Lima Avenue project is progressing nicely.  Curbs are complete from Simon Street east to the end of the project.  Sidewalks and drives are partially complete.


The section from Simon Street west to Main Street is being prepared for curbs and sidewalks at this writing.  


Contact Via e-mail Modified


The contact via e-mail page of this site did not make it clear how to indicate whether you wanted to include your e-mail address or not.  It has been changed to simply require your e-mail address.  

Flowers in Railroad Park


Flowers baskets have been placed on the light poles in front of Ada's Railroad Park and in front of the Depot.  This is done with seed money from a citizen of Ada and some additional money from the Mayor's annual budget.  The goal is to have the same baskets throughout the commercial district of Ada in 2015 with sponsorships from individuals, service clubs and organizations as well as from businesses in and around Ada.  Costs and procedures will be publicized later this summer.  The fee will be greater for the first year to support the purchase of the baskets and each year there will be a fee to pay the greenhouse to maintain the flowers.  All are encouraged to visit the Railroad Park and enjoy the well kept grounds as well as to consider participating in 2015.
