Recently the Village of Milan Council approved the resurfacing of Lockwood Road from the Johns Manville parking lot to Main Street and awarded the contract to A.J. Riley. This project will include the intersections of Huron Street and Judson Street.
A.J. Riley informed the Village that they will be in sometime early next week to begin the project.
The roadway will remain open to residences and businesses during this project, expect delays while the construction is taking place. Please DO NOT PARK in the parking spaces on Lockwood Road starting Monday June 17th until the project is completed.
We understand that this is going to cause an inconvenience, however, it is a necessary project to complete.


For after-hours utility emergencies, please call the Milan Police Department non-emergency number at (419) 499-2001

               On May 2, 2024 the Village Officials received emails from Sandusky Register Editor, Matt Westerhold. Before the Village could respond, Mr. Westerhold published his story.  Since then, he has published an editorial.  Now Mr. Westerhold has submitted more questions covering the same subject area all having their roots in the former Fiscal Officer Mary Bruno events.

                The Village of Milan is a great place to live, visit and raise a family.  This administration and prior administrations have worked very hard to accomplish that atmosphere. Internally, the Village has worked hard to revise its policies, procedures, and ordinances to make its operation more efficient, transparent, and compliant with the Auditor of Ohio’s suggestions.

                Former Fiscal Officer Bruno was removed from employment in 2017.  The Village has long ago moved past the situation and the administration and employees have focused their energy on making the Village the great place it is.  The Village wishes Mr. Westerhold would also move past the 2017 event and focus his energy on all the positive things the Village has to offer.  Since Mr. Westerhold seems motivated not to take that path, the Village will continue to use its energy to make the Village a great place and not focus on a 7-year-old event and not answer Mr. Westerhold’s questions or commenting on his published material regarding the Village of Milan on this subject.  

If any resident wants to address any of their concerns, please reach out to Mayor Crosby.

On Friday April 26, 2024, the Village of Milan held an Arbor Day Tree Planting Ceremony. Mayor Pamela Crosby was assisted by the Village of Milan Street, Electric Departments and Village residents Charles and Patricia Krause in planting an October Glory Maple on Pawnee Drive. Mayor Crosby read an Arbor Day Proclamation at a recent Council Meeting on April 24, 2024. Pictured left to right Charles Krause, Patricia Krause and Mayor Pamela Crosby.

Milan, OH, was named a 2021 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.

Milan achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program's four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

"Tree City USA communities see the impact an urban forest has in a community first hand," said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Additionally, recognition brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it's through volunteer engagement or public education."

Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.

More information on the program is available at

About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit conservation and education organization with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. More information is available at
