Richfield's February Meeting

By Ian Faulkner, Staff Writer

Monday, February 25, 2013 — Richfield appointed a new head of department, looked at a lease renewal for the Nextel tower and discussed the Golden Spark Award at Monday’s regular meeting.

At last month’s meeting Floyd Wilson, a former mayor of Richfield, was appointed to fill the vacant seat on Richfield’s board of commissioners. However, Wilson still hadn’t been appointed a specific duty.

“We need to find you a job, Mr. Floyd,” said Mayor Jim Misenheimer.

Barry Byrd, commissioner of streets and utilities, spoke saying that he had too much on his plate as commissioner of streets and utilities. He nominated Wilson to serve in the capacity of comissioner of streets and zoning.
