Former longtime Stettler mayor Jim Hunter was thanked for his years of service on council and to the community.
Town of Stettler council and administration presented Hunter with a special gift of appreciation during its regular meeting Sept. 1.
Hunter resigned as mayor in July after serving five years as mayor and nine years as councilor when he was appointed a provincial judge for the central Alberta region by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General.
“I’m really touched by this,” said Hunter who accepted a large framed collage of various major projects by the Town of Stettler during his time as mayor.
“I really enjoyed working with great people and it’s projects like this that make this a great town.”
Major projects featured in the frame included beautification, the swimming pool at Stettler Recreation Centre, the new joint office with Clearview School Division, sponsor-a-bench program, Memorial Tree Park, Stettler Sports Park, affordable housing projects, Veterans’ Way dedication, Spray Park, regional fire-rescue additions and upgrades and annexation with the County of Stettler.
