Mayor Tom Henry honored retiring Arborist Bill Diedrichs at Lawton Park for his 20 years of outstanding service to the city. Diedrichs recently won the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Indiana Arborist Association and helped the city through countless tree emergencies including wind storms, tornadoes and ice storms.
“We’ll deeply appreciate Bill’s dedication over the years. He worked hard to put a great structure in place to maintain our trees and paved the way for our new Tree Commission to take tree management to the next level,” said Mayor Henry. “I encourage all citizens to follow Bill’s efforts by working to protect the City’s parks and public trees.”"
