Mayor presents American Red Cross Month proclamation during City Council meeting


GREENVILLE – The Greenville City Council met on Tuesday evening. All Council members were present. 

During Public Hearing, Jana Dieter spoke about a senior citizen’s concern with public transit. 

“She is a senior citizen,” Dieter said. “She takes the transit because she no longer drives. She went to the grocery store, and she had to sit for two hours.” 

Deiter explained that the lady she talked to sat for two hours waiting on a transit. Ryan Delk responded. 

“Most of the transits are averaging 30 minutes to an hour with or without the county,” Delk said. “The best thing to do is to schedule in advance.” 

Delk also suggested that the lady Dieter talked to should call and talk directly to Transit to determine what happened in that specific situation and how to prevent it from happening again. 

During Administrative Reports, Mayor Whitaker presented a proclamation declaring March as American Red Cross Month.

“We recognize the compassion of people in Darke County and reaffirm our commitment to care for one another in times of crisis such as this,” Whitaker said. “We nearby recognize this month of March in honor of all those who lead with their hearts to serve people in need, and we ask everyone to join in this commitment to strengthen our community. It’s therefore my privilege to proclaim March 2024 as Red Cross Month, and I encourage all citizens of Darke County to reach out and support its humanitarian mission.”

Mayor Whitaker presented the proclamation to American Red Cross board member Terri Flood. 

Greenville City Council meets the first and third Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm on the second floor of the City Building, 100 Public Square, Greenville, Ohio, 45331.
