Main Street bridge named in honor of Rev. Mueller
The Main Street bridge in Watertown has been named “The Rev. Tim Mueller bridge” for a period of one year.
The bridge naming presentation was made at the annual Watertown Riverfest celebration this past weekend. The presentation was made by Tom Schultz, Riverfest chairman.
Mueller is director of the Watertown Recreation and Outreach Center, also known as “The ROC.” Through that center he has touched in a positive way the lives of many of the city’s youth.
The person nominating Mueller said, “He provides counseling and hope to kids that may not have anywhere else to turn.
“I feel that his care and mentoring have saved many teens from getting into trouble and hanging around with the wrong crowd.
“He truly cares and loves each one of those kids. Just stop in to the Roc for a visit and you’ll see what I mean.”
Each year the bridge is named after an individual who has given much to the community.
There are no age restrictions but the person honored must live in or near the community or have strong ties to Watertown.
As part of the presentation, Mueller received a plaque as a permanent award for the honor and his name will be placed on a plaque at the entrance to the Rock River Walkway in downtown Watertown.
