Steve Phelps Sr., the DPW superintendent for the City of Harrison, stepped down Thursday night after 35 years of service to the City. Officials honored Phelps with a retirement open house at the City Hall / DPW Garage.
“Phelps has been a great asset to the City,” according to Tracey Beadle, city manager and clerk. Council presented Phelps with a proclamation praising his works and gave him a key to the City.
“To say that Steve will be missed is an understatement. I have always appreciated his thoughtful, steady approach to solving things,” Beadle said. “Steve is one of those people that you instantly become friends with and not ‘just’ a coworker.”
F&V staffers, including Craig Shumaker, were on hand. He noted that Beadle’s words are echoed by all those who have ever worked wit
