Gray honored for service to city

Eugene Gray, former Webster City mayor and city councilman, was presented a plaque Wednesday, honoring his years of service as the city’s representative on the Hamilton County Solid Waste Commission.

Gray served as Webster City’s representative on the Solid Waste Commission from 2003 through 2013 – in addition to 12 years he previously had served.

“In addition to this plaque, I would like to extend my thanks to you for all of your community service,” said Getter. “The years that you have provided Webster City indeed have been challenging but also, I’m sure, fun.”

Gray served on the City Council from 1977 to 1984, from 2002 to 2009 and was mayor in 1980, 1982, and again for six years in his last term. During his tenure as mayor, Gray said he witnessed the 100th birthday of the Webster City Fire Station, the quasquicentennial and the sesquicentennial for the city.

“We know that when we have another community milestone or celebration, we’re going to come back and get you,” Getter said to Gray.
