At the September 4 City Council Meeting, Council members took time to honor two former Board of Adjustment members for their long-standing service to the City. Mrs. Margaret Stephens served on the Board of Adjustment from January 1990 until July of 2007, with over 17 years of service. Mrs. Stephens served as the Board’s Chairperson from November 1998, until July 2003, and continued to serve faithfully until her term ended in July of 2007.
Mrs. Mary Watson served as a faithful member of the Board completing 3 consecutive 3-year terms from September 1998, until July 2007.
Both Margaret and Mary served on a Board of Adjustment case in 2005 that lasted from 8:48 a.m. until 6:49 p.m. (10 hours).
The Council thanked them for all the hours and effort invested in such an imperative board, and presented each with a plaque expressing their gratitude.
