Mayor Heather Lindsay proclaimed Friday, April 26 as Arbor Day, stating this year is the 25th year the city has taken part in Arbor Day festivities. Each year the council has a new tree planted.
This year the tree was dedicated to the late Captain David Cox who passed away in 2017. Cox served the Milton Police Department for close to 40 years. His wife, children and pastor attended the ceremony.
"Captain David Cox was a fine man, a dedicated public servant who spent his entire career committed to the public safety of Milton. We are thankful for his dedication and plant this tree in his memory," said Mayor Heather Lindsay.
Many of Cox's co-workers and others spoke of his continuing influence and countless words of encouragement.
