Gratitude to members of city task force

Published: Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

The governmental task force appointed by Mayor Burke has submitted its report and recommendation to our city council for its consideration.

I feel that the community owes each member of that task force a considerable measure of gratitude for the time and effort they gave to their hometown. They served without compensation to help us find which direction we need to go after having passed through a time of great stress.

We all know that there will be some who disagree with their findings, but we should never doubt their good faith and dedication to the best interests of our community.

The task force consisted of Marilyn Coffee, Bill Wadsworth, Jack Schrauth, Kelly Allen, Mike Cole, Jim Marshall and Tom Shaw. Thank you, friends, for the valuable community service you have so freely given.
