There have been challenging issues but Municipal Councilmember Dean Quayle said overall serving in that position has been an extremely positive experience.
On <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/328/2013_06_06_328_11458_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s Crosstalk program Wednesday</a>, Quayle announced that he would not be seeking re-election and said he has a great respect for Logan City officials and employees and is proud of what has been accomplished.
Among the highlights he mentioned were the new canal just getting finished, the landlord licensing program and improvements at the airport – including a brand new fire truck.
“(It’s a) beautiful new piece of equipment that has tremendous capability for rescue, for fire suppression and so forth on the airport,” Quayle said.
“It’s been long coming and replaces a vehicle that was bought used many years ago and sat in that garage leaking and wondering if it would ever work. The fire department made it work but now they’ve got a great new piece of equipment to work with.”
He said an exciting event coming up this month in connection with the airport is a women pilots’ cross country race. They plan to stay overnight at the airport on June 18th.
Quayle was appointed to the council when Steve Thompson left and six months later, in November 2009, he successfully ran for office.
