Tiffin Mayor Dawn Iannantuono said, “A robust community development program is absolutely essential to the continued growth and revitalization of Tiffin, and public input is key a component of ensuring that program aligns with our community’s needs and desires. Strong community engagement is critical to our success in seeking grants and state funding, and I look forward to seeing what Tiffin residents think should be our priorities.
