“I’m really excited about all of the progress currently being made and the positive momentum we have established moving this community forward,” he said.

Mayor Armitage pointed out several successes that have taken place over the last sixteen months that he seeks to build upon. “We have applied for and been awarded nearly a million dollars in grant funds over the last year for projects that range from park improvements to local road repairs.” “We are one of only a small handful of cities that have received some of these grants and I will continue searching and fighting for future opportunities to take advantage of everything we can to improve Milan,” Mayor Armitage said.

Mayor Armitage introduced the Main Street Program that has been adopted and embraced. “There are a lot of things currently in motion to support our current businesses and attract new investments. Last year alone, we welcomed eleven new businesses into the city and I see that trend continuing.”

There is still work to be done and Mayor Armitage is prepared to continue this effort during his second term. “I want to continue giving back to a city that has given so much to me and my family.” “I love this community and it is an honor and lifelong dream to serve as Mayor,” he said.
