Abel, Hunter, council members honored at final City Council meeting
(2007-12-18)
(WOUB) - "It was fun."

With those three words, Athens Mayor Ric Abel acknowledged the applause and appreciation of City Council last night.

Council President Bill Bias read from a resolution honoring Abel for his 26 years of public service in Athens, including three terms as mayor.

Resolutions of appreciation were also approved for Law Director Garry Hunter, and councilmembers Bojinka Bishop, Carol Patterson and Paul Wiehl.

Except for Wiehl, all will be leaving city government when their terms expire at the end of the year.

Wiehl will become mayor.
