The year of 2013 in Conrad saw news that that touched our lives, some bad, but mostly good.
The I-O takes a look back at events from last year that were put on our pages.
JANUARY: The New Year got underway with mail carrier Joel Peters receiving a special certificate for noticing a mail build-up at customers’ residence. One customer needed assistance and one had passed away.
Janice Hoppes, commissioner Kody Farkell, clerk and recorder, and Laurie Eisenzimer, clerk of court, were sworn into office.
A fire in an apartment on the 400 block of Maryland sent 12-year-old Julia Winney to the special burn unit in Salt Lake City.
The last council meeting of the old year saw the swearing in of four incumbents and one new council member.
City Finance Officer Agnes Fowler administered the oath of office to Mayor Wendy Judisch and Aldermen Ron Widhalm, Karla Breding and Drew Lesnik, and new council member, Daniel Jones.
In her report to the council after the oath of office ceremony, Fowler noted in part that an Arbor Day grant had been prepared and the CDBG annual report for submission has been prepared.
