Park Hills Says Goodbye to Long-Time Councilman & World War II Marine Hero Recognized

(Park Hills) The Park Hills City Council said goodbye during their meeting this week to a long time city councilman.

City Administrator Mark McFarland says the City will miss this gentleman.

Aldermen chose Stacey Easter to be the next president pro-tem for the council.

Also at the meeting, a resolution was passed recognizing Darrell S. Cole.

McFarland says Park Hills will now do something for Cole.

In other news from this week’s Park Hills City Council meeting, Adam Bowers, besides on the council, is also the chair of the Swimming Pool Committee.

He showed his gratitude to the citizens for easily passing the measure that will make it possible to build a new swimming pool in Columbia Park and also talked about some of the plans for the project.

Also, the council gave approval for an event next Saturday the 23rd.

It’s called “Cruise for Justice”.

It’s to remember Central graduate and football player Derontae Martin who was discovered deceased in a home in Madison County after a party under questionable circumstances last year.

The event will begin at the Columbia Park Amphitheater at noon.

A cruise and candlelight vigil walk will begin around 5 o’clock next Saturday evening.
