Findlay mayor gives State of the City address

FINDLAY, OH (WTOL) - Findlay Mayor Lydia Mihalik held this year's state of the city address at the Millstream Career Center Tuesday.

The mayor spoke on the positive economic advances of the city and the general capital improvements over the last five years.

She also cited how Findlay has been named the nation's Top Micropolitan Community for three consecutive years.

There were also many elementary students in attendance who are following the "Leader in Me" program.

Mayor Mihalik says the community needs to work to make sure these children are built up and trained to be the future of the city of Findlay.

"The only way that we can continue that success is if we have people to fill the pipeline," Mayor Mihalik explained. "We have people who eventually want to retire, they're going to need those jobs filled. And we have new jobs that we're bringing to the community that we're going to need people to fill as well."

The event ended with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new welding center at Millstream Career Center.
