|Bill Revord attends last meeting as Council member after not seeking reelection|
(Tuesday - November 02, 2021) - Iron Mountain Council member Bill Revord
attended his final meeting as a City Council member on Monday, after
choosing not to seek reelection in today's municipal balloting.
Revord began his public service in Iron Mountain as a patrolman with the City Police Department, working his way up through the ranks, and retiring as the City's Chief of Police.
In 2013, Revord made a successful run for the City Council, representing the City's third ward. At the time of his retirement from the Council, Revord was serving as the City's Mayor Pro-tem.
Revord told the Council that it had been a pleasure working with them for the past eight years. The Council approved a resolution, thanking him for his service.
At the same time, the Council corrected a long-standing ommission, when Mayor Dale Alessandrini presented Revord with the traditional gold watch, which he should have received at the time of his retirement as Chief of Police.
Revord told us earlier that he does expect that he will miss being a Councilman. But, he said, "This doesn't mean that I won't run for something else."
Revord will be replaced as third ward Council Member by David Farragh. Farragh is running unopposed for that seat in today's election.
