New mayor Kent Steward reads a proclamation to honor Troy Hickman for his 16 years on the commission. Troy’s son Bryce is next to him.

During a rather lighthearted Hays City Commission meeting on Thursday night, Kent Steward was elected the  new Mayor and Henry Schwaller as the new Vice Mayor.

The Commissioners also Proclaimed April 11, 2013 as Troy Hickman day for everything Hickman helped accomplish in serving 16 years on the city commission.

 Commissioners Eber Phelps and Shaun Musil were sworn in and began their new terms of service on the city commission.  Musil thanked his family for attending Thursday night’s meeting, thanked fellow commissioners and city staff for their help. “I’m really excited about this opportunity,” he said.
Commissioners also approved two re-appointments on the Care Council and approved the change of dates on the tax abatement for A-1 Scaffold.

    OMG – Troy Hickman Day? really? I’ve never known that dude to keep a real job, but he did serve as a commissioner for quite some time. Not sure it’s worthy of having your own day, but whatever. I think sometimes we get so busy patting each other on the back that we forget about reality.

    I went to college with Troy and always considered him a good friend. 16 years shows a lot of dedication to the City of Hays. Good for Troy.

    Please…a Troy day, did he ever really contribute? I think he is one of those “nice guys” that stay right below the radar…rides the fence and skirts the major issues.
    Where is his wife?
