LOUIS SEWER DISTRICT: The Board herewith cites and thanks Mr. Stiers for his land and devoted service, for the inestimable value of his intelligent leadership and unerring judgment as a member of this Board, and particularly during his unprecedented five-year tenure as Board Chairman, for guiding the District successfully through some of its most difficult problems and projects; To recount Mr. Stiers' personal contributions to the progress of this District would be virtually to recount the entire history of the District itself, for his tenure parallels those years of greatest achievement by the District, and in each of these numerous accomplishments Mr. Stiers has given a full measure of personal interest effort, and has been largely responsible for their success; Though he now departs this Board his contributions will forever be a part of this Board and this District and will continue to serve well for countless years to come the people of this District; Mr. Stiers' outstanding capabilities will be missed and, equally so, his personal warmth and valued friendship. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this expression by the Board be forwarded to Mr. Stiers. The foregoing Resolution was adopted July 21, 1966.
