DAYTON – Mayor Aaron Beutler and the city council is leading the call for 100 volunteers from amongst its residents. They’re needed to help preserve and enhance the city’s water system.
The number of volunteers requested is also symbolic of the city’s official incorporation 100 years ago, on April 19, 1914. That step at formal organization was taken mainly for the purpose of bonding and building a community water system. Incorporation was given the go-ahead by Franklin County Commissioners on July 13 of that year, the mayor told The Citizen.
He recounted the sweat and tears of local residents to build the community’s water system: “Built between 1914 and 1936 by loyal local citizens, this innovative water system has served the community well. Now part of that system is failing due to rusted steel pipe and many years of wear.”
