Martin Busch was recognized on Aug. 6 by the Medina Planning Board for his 24 years as the village code enforcement office.

MEDINA – Marty Busch, Medina’s code enforcement officer, was recognized last week by the Medina Planning Board during his last meeting as the village’s code officer before his retirement next month.

The board presented Busch with a certificate of appreciation for Busch’s “pursuit of excellence in planning, sign and preservation of our community and heritage.”

The Planning Board also functions as Medina’s Architectural and Historic Review Board.

Busch has been the village’s code enforcement officer for 24 years, during a time of renaissance in the downtown business district and expansion in Medina’s Business Park.

He was praised for helping to craft design standards for the community and for working with business owners and residents to meet those regulations.

In a letter to the Village Board on June 24, Busch thanked the village officials and community for the opportunity to work in Medina.

“The job introduced me to people, took me places and showed me things I never could have imagined,” Busch wrote in his letter. “Most of all I am extremely grateful to have worked with and for the most dedicated, hard working and in some cases brave people I have ever known. Medina is truly blessed to have such public employees and officials.”
