There was an article in today's Tribune about a New Albany citizen who received an award this past Tuesday. The honoree is former City Councilman Bill Schmidt.

Mr. Schmidt was awarded for his service with the Solid Waste Board. He served on this board from it's beginning in 1992 until December 2007. Executive Director Warren Nash said that to his knowledge no other board has had a member who has served the entire tenure of the board.

This is just one example of Bill's loyalty. He has served with numerous organizations for many years and deserves awards from each of them. Our community is lucky to such a citizen.

I am truly honored to call Bill Schmidt my friend.
