Councilman Coy Stepping Down

NORFOLK - Ward One City Councilman Dale Coy has resigned his position with the city of Norfolk – to accept a different position with the city.  Coy, who was first elected to serve Ward One in 2006, has accepted a position with the City Parks Division. During his tenure, the Veteran’s Memorial Park improvement bond issue passed, LB840 funding was approved by voters, funds were set aside for a natural gas pipeline, the city administration moved into the former Supertel office building, and a new water transmission pipe was placed in southwest Norfolk.  Coy says as a councilman, he has seen how the city staff works together as a team to get things done, and he is anxious to contribute to the city as part of that team.  The Mayor will appoint a new council member to represent Ward One and fill the remainder of Coy’s term, which expires in December. Those interested should file a written statement of interest in the position and provide a resume to Norfolk City Administrator Shane Weidner. The deadline to submit an application for the position is June 23rd.  Coy had filed for re-election and is unopposed, meaning there is currently no candidate for the Ward One council position. Anyone interested in having his name placed on the November ballot for the Ward One council seat may do so through a petition process.
