Retirement was the theme during Tuesday's (6/20/17) Board of Aldermen Meeting in Louisville. Mike Towne was recognized for his years of service to the Louisville Fire Department. Towne has served as a full time firefighter since 1999 and on a volunteer basis prior to that time.

This meeting was also the last for Ward One Alderman Dickie Caperton who did not seek reelection. Caperton has served on the Board for 12 years. It was an emotional time as Caperton reminisced and said farewells to many including fellow board members, department heads and Mayor Hill.

Caperton noted that he had never missed a meeting during his time in office and that he took pride in that accomplishment. "I love this city. No one loves this community more than I do."
