IRON RIVER—A dedication ceremony was held June 13 to officially rename Iron River’s RV park as the Klint Safford Memorial RV Park, in memory of the late city manager and commissioner.
The Iron River City Commission had approved the name change last October.
The master of ceremonies at the dedication was Bob Black, director of the Iron County Chamber of Commerce. Mayor Terry Tarsi talked about when Safford served as city manager from 1974 to 1980. Dale Safford, Klint’s wife, spoke about how they came to live in Iron River and the service he gave to the city that he loved.
The Safford portion of the work done on the sign and a nearby plaque in Safford’s honor were done by Tedd Pasternak of Wolf Track Design. The background for the sign and the Chamber of Commerce portion was completed by Kris Hughes of Nicolet Sign and Design.
