New details released regarding Mayor Montz’s upcoming trip to Japan: When it will happen and more




TIFFIN, OH ( News) — More details have been released about Mayor Aaron Montz’s upcoming trip to Japan.

Last week, City Council members 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 travel in September to Japan with David Zak, President & CEO of the Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership, for the 2019 Midwest US-Japan Association Conference in Tokyo

Other state officials will also be attending the trip.

It has been nearly 15 years since a Tiffin city official has traveled abroad on official business.

Tiffin is home to Japanese companies Taiho Corporation and American Fine Sinter, which employee over 600 people.

“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. “This is an important step in our economic development.”
