Thank You For Your Service

“Thank You” for your service.

Zumbro Falls January 2017 City Council meeting welcomed incoming council members and thanked out going members.

Bruce Heitmann begins his first term as Mayor. Sarah Jackson will serve as a Council member and Sue Eischens continues her service as City clerk.

Al VanDeWalker retires after 24 ½ years as Mayor of Zumbro Falls. As Mayor, he began serving in 1990 and terms ran consecutively thru 2010. He stepped back in to fill a mayoral vacancy in 2012 and completed two more terms. Looking back in history, beginning 1898 thru 2016, Al served as Mayor longer than anyone before him (Zumbro Falls Centennial Book, City Government information-chapter 4). Zumbro Falls has seen many challenges and changes during these years. Al’s leadership, dedication, determination, perseverance and hands on approach has surely been an asset to our community. Thank you!

Thank you to Kelly Preble for serving a term as a Council member.
