Feldner PLYMOUTH – David Williams bid the City Council farewell Tuesday night after five and a-half years on the council.

“It’s been one of the best experiences of my life. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and I will miss it,” Williams, who is moving to Sheboygan Falls, stated. Tuesday was his last meeting as an alderman.

Williams was first elected for a partial term representing the 1st District on the city’s northwest side in 2012 and won reelection to full two-year terms in 2013, 2015 and 2017.

Williams was presented with a proclamation of commendation and an engraved pen in recognition of his service by Mayor Donald Pohlman.

The council also honored long-time Public Works Department employee Charles Kreisa, who is retiring at the end of the month.

Kreisa joined the department in 1976 and rose to the position of street superintendent in 2003.

Along with a commendation proclamation, a brick with Kreisa’s name on it will be placed in the “Walk of Fame” recognition area in the pocket park on the northeast corner of Mill and Caroline streets.

In honoring Williams, Pohlman told him, “It has truly been an honor to have you on the council. Your input has been very valid over the years.”

In his turn, Williams thanked his colleagues, past and present, on the council.

“We always were able to talk in a dignified and respectful manner, come to a consensus, make our vote and move on the next issue,” Williams pointed out.

He also thanked city staff and supervisors for their support and help over the years.

“Any time we had an issue, I was always able to contact the supervisors and get more information I needed to make a decision. I learned more about sewers, repairing roads and other issues than anyone should know,” Williams said.

Williams urged citizens to become more involved in city government and consider running for the council.

“It’s city government, your local government, that affects you most,” Williams observed. “If you ever had a problem or you want to affect the city of Plymouth, this is where you start.”
