City Councilman Andy Wilson is still looking for photos of past mayors to help complete a wall of portraits representing the history of the city's leadership. Andy is calling on all residents who may have access to such photos to provide them for display or at least for the purpose of making a copy for the collection. Andy has emphasized how significant the contributions have been of our past mayors and is hoping the display, currently in City Hall, can help these men and women be remembered.
