CCA school district, City of Tiffin in disagreement over sidewalk payments

At odds once again

TIFFIN– It’s sat complete for a couple of months, but payment for the public sidewalk along Highway 6 is just now causing some confusion between the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) school district and the City of Tiffin.
“In my mind, it’s pretty cut-and-dried,” said CCA superintendent Tim Kuehl during a conversation in late July.
According to an agreement signed in July 2014, said Kuehl, the city is responsible for $120,701 of the total $321,869 cost of the sidewalk, which spans the south side of Hwy. 6, from the west side of the high school to Ireland Avenue.
