Council approves thousands for Montz to travel to Japan for investment conference




TIFFIN, OH ( News) — City Council members on Monday approved the use of $6,000 from the general fund for Mayor Aaron Montz’s travel to Japan as part of an investment conference.

Montz will soon travel to Japan with David Zak, President & CEO of the Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership, for an investment conference with Japanese companies and officials.

“I believe this is money for economic development and the people of Tiffin will reap the benefits,” Councilman Rich Focht said of the travel funding.

In addition to attending the investment conference, Zak said he hopes they can strengthen the relationship between the City of Tiffin and Japanese companies and officials.

The Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership is a 501c3 nonprofit public-private partnership that drives and leads economic, downtown, and community development for Tiffin and Seneca County, Ohio.

In the last four years, Tiffin and Seneca County have experienced tremendous growth and development, ranking in the top 10% of almost 600 similarly sized communities nationally for economic development, ranking in the top 10 three times in the last five years.
