At the April 27 City Council meeting, Mayor Lorraine Morton, who also serves as the City’s chief liquor commissioner, presented certificates to retiring Liquor Commission members Jane Alexander and Don Heyrman.
Mr. Heyrman served on the Liquor Commission since its inception in 1973, since the implementation of the City’s liquor code in 1973. Ms. Alexander was appointed to the commission in 1974. She said she had had a “wonderful time” on the Liquor Commission. Mr. Heyrman said, “In this age of corruption, I want to say that in my time on the Liquor Commission no one offered me a bribe – in fact, no one offered me even a drink.”
