[ARCHIVED] City says goodbye to longtime councilman


City Council members, City staff and residents bid farewell to a longtime City Councilman last month.
Before the City Council meeting Jan. 8, the City hosted a reception for Mr. Scott Snavely to honor his service on the Council. Snavely was defeated by Chad Eckert, who previously held a seat on the City Council, in a narrow margin in the November 2017 elections.
“We had a vacancy on the Council [in 2016] and Mr. Snavely was previously elected to the City Council before he moved out of town,” Mayor Steven Ellis said of how Snavely became a City Council member in this term. “He moved back in town and serendipitously, around the time of that vacancy, he answered his community’s call to serve. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your service. We appreciate it. Your community appreciates it.”
Previously, Snavely was elected in April 2007 and served until April 2011 for his full term. After Eckert resigned from his seat in 2016 to also move outside the City limits, Snavely was appointed to fill his seat until the term expired in January 2018.
After accepting a gift from the City, Mr. Snavely addressed those in attendance at the Community Center.
“It’s been interesting,” Snavely said of his time on the City Council. “I wish I wasn’t going anywhere but there’s new challenges and new chapters ahead so I’m moving forward.”
