HIRA will be headed by some new names. Returning will be Brian Humphrys, Faye Muller and Roger Scott-Taggart. The new HIRA directors will be Terry Botten, Gary Hall, Geoff Hobbs, Gary Nichol and Lisa Webb. The directors were all voted in by residents during the annual HIRA AGM held Friday evening at St. Philomena’s Hall.
Bowing out are Austin Page, Jim Mills, Aileen Beehler, Michael Hickey and Heather Lippert. Austin was the founder, initial president and driving force behind the startup of HIRA. Jim was instrumental in the transportation studies which resulted in the decision to keep the Township Ferry operating this coming winter.
A summary of the meeting and profiles of our new executive will follow in the next few days.
