MEDINA – Kathy Blackburn, chairwoman of the Medina Municipal Tree Board, presents a “Friends of our Urban Forest Award” to Jason Watts, superintendent of the Medina Department of Public Works.

She presented the recognition during Monday’s Village Board meeting. Watts and the DPW were honored for their efforts planting about 50 trees annually in the village. The DPW also sets up for the annual Arbor Day festivities in Medina.

Blackburn said Watts and the DPW put in a lot of work to get all the trees planted.

“Every time we call they are so wonderful,” Blackburn said. “They are a great group.”
