At their Tuesday evening meeting, the Buffalo City Council recognized two former members of the Buffalo Tree Board who recently retired after a number of years' service.
Steve Nuckolls and Arthur “Coog” Myers were both presented plaques thanking them for their dedication and service to better Buffalo's trees and wooded and forested areas.
Mayor Randy Dyess gave a short presentation, saying the Buffalo Tree Board consists of five volunteers that provide advice to the city council on management of Buffalo's forested areas and in proper tree care, planting, pruning and other tree issues.
Because of their efforts, Buffalo is a Certified Tree City.
He then recognized each retiring board member.
Mayor Dyess also proclaimed May 8th as Arbor Day in Buffalo and announced a tree planting ceremony to be held that day at the City Pool.
