Protocol Items

 

 

Tribute to Former City Councillor R. Hayter

 

 

 

B. Henderson, on behalf of Utility Committee, paid tribute to a remarkable citizen and former City Councillor R. Hayter, who passed away Saturday, April 21, 2018. He was one of the longest serving municipal leaders in the city having been first elected to office in 1971 and served until 1995. He returned to Council in 2001 where he continued to serve Edmontonians until his retirement in 2010. During his time on Council, he championed many projects that helped put Edmonton in the spotlight, including the Edmonton Convention Centre, the LRT, the establishment of waste recycling programs and the preservation of the river valley. His passing is a great loss to the city and for all those that knew him and will be missed but his legacy, his sense of pride and his commitment to his community will always be remembered. A moment of silence was held.
