Dozens of well-wishers stopped by the Carpenter Center in Terrytown Wednesday to help outgoing Mayor Kent Greenwalt celebrate his retirement.
Having served as mayor for the past 12 years, Greenwalt told KNEB News he has seen many accomplishments over that time, including the cleanup of Terry’s Lake and the installation of water meters in the community, which is currently underway.
Greenwalt says it has been a pleasure to serve as Terrytown’s mayor.
“It’s been a long time, and I’ve enjoyed doing it,” explains Greenwalt. “I was the first mayor they ever had in Terrytown… and I just felt it was time- and it was time to step back and let someone else do it.”
Prior to it’s mayor and city council form of government starting in 2006, Terrytown was governed by a Village Board.
Christopher Perales will succeed Greenwalt as Terrytown’s mayor.
