Commission Elects New Mayor, Honors Hickman
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.
