Mayor thanked for “a great job”

District of Barriere MAyor Bill Humphreys gets thank you from area business owners

To the editor;

We would like to publicly thank our mayor, Bill Humphreys, for his unswerving help in finding a safe haven and proper care for an elderly tenant who was no longer able to look after his basic needs.  We had tried for three years to get help for this man without success.  In desperation we called Mayor Humphreys, he got right into the problem and had it solved in less than one week.

His invaluable help in the past couple of weeks dealing with the environment officers, police officers, and fire fighters who were needed to deal with a trespasser(s) who was destroying the river habitat, starting uncontrolled burns, and ignoring our requests to cease and desist is also much appreciated.

Once again, thanks Mr. Mayor for doing a great job.
