Woody Vickers, Laurel’s Supervisor of Public Works for 8 1/2 years will be leaving his post for a position with Public Works in Ocean City, Md.
Vickers, without the guidance of a Town Manager has been able to help secure millions in grants and loans to upgrade Laurel’s detoriating sewer and water system including upgrades to the sewer/water plant. His latest project is the sewer and water lines that are in progress which will extend service across the highway.
I have always found him willing to work with the people in town; he and his crew have been very responsive to the citizens in Laurel, especially during storms, snow or otherwise.
His last day is Oct. 1. We wish him well and God Speed, and….thanks for your service.
