Munger Given Mayor's Award of Excellence

Gina MungerMADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/16/13) – The Madisonville City Council meeting was bittersweet on July 16. It was the final official meeting for City Clerk Gina Munger, who is retiring at the end of the month, and the appointment of Leslie Curneal as her replacement was approved.

Mayor David Jackson presented Munger with a Mayor's Award of Excellence.

Munger told the council she has presided over 520 council meetings during her 30-plus-year clerk's career. Her voice becoming slightly emotional, she said she tried to take care of the city's employees as she would her own family.

"It's been a privilege to represent the city of Madisonville," she said. "I love you all."

The council unanimously approved Curneal to the position effective Aug. 1.

Curneal is hosting a retirement party for Munger from 4 to 6 p.m. July 23 on the Eighth Floor of Baptist Health Tower. Acknowledgements will be at 5 p.m.

In other business, 51 On Main, a local restaurant, was granted permission to install a hanging sign above its front doors on Main Street. The sign will occupy the same space as the former Bartholomew's sign, said Debbie Todd, zoning administrator. The signage fits into the city's ordinance, she said.

The council gave permission for the Madisonville Police Department to pursue a Homeland Security grant for funds to purchase radios to improve the safety of officers and assist in communications coverage.

The council also listened to remarks from citizen Scott Rogers, who gave his opinion about money given to the Hopkins County Library system by the city and Hopkins County.

Rogers noted that the city has reduced its annual contribution to the library by $100,000 last year. He also said he favors staffing the library with volunteers.

The mayor presented longevity pins to Neil Gordon of the Filtration Department with for 20 years; Jason Field, Brandon Tow and Shawn Williams, all of the Fire Department and each for 10 years; Leslie Gregory of the Police Department for 10 years; Billy Cook with the Sanitation Department for 35 years; and, Jason Wiley with the Transportation Department for 20 years.
