The April 20 Milford City Council meeting opened with an award for a longstanding business.
Mayor Amy Brewer presented Tim and Marcy Schutte with a City Council Sustainability Award to celebrate Valetone Cleaners’ 50 years of business in Milford. In accepting the award, Schutte said that he was most proud of his collaboration with his customers to raise money for the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
“I created a program called Share the Discount,” Schutte said. “If customers come in with a three dollar coupon and say they want to use it to share the discount, I charge full price but I sent the coupon amount to St. Vincent de Paul.” He also said that he gives one percent over and above the coupon price.
