I would like to begin by giving thanks to the former Mayor’s and Council men for the commitment and effort it took to start the process of incorporation. These men realized the need in this community for good clean water. Many people had to deal with iron water or little water if any. By incorporating the newly formed town was able to apply for a loan to bring water to West Jefferson and surrounding communities.
This was a great accomplishment in itself, but the town was also able to bring natural gas to the area by taking out another loan. These men not only took on the challenge of bringing these much needed services to the town, but many of these same men were in office long enough to see these loans paid in full.
Being a servant of the town for over 30 years now, I have been fortunate to see most of the town’s growth first hand. I look forward to continued growth for many years to come.
