Mayor Denis Duman presents a plaque to outgoing Councilman Jack Duman for his 10 years of service as a City Councilman.  Jack served as Street Commissioner and was instrumental in many of the street improvements and renovations, most notably the rebuilding of Lewiston Street.  He was also Chairman of the West Camas Highway group and has been instrumental in procuring grant monies for not only the City of Cottonwood but surrounding highway districts and the City of Ferdinand through their collaborative efforts.  He will be sorely missed not only by the Council but also by the surrounding area that appreciates good roads at a minimum cost.
