Fort Saskatchewan's city manager Troy Fleming was the subject of a special ceremony during council's meeting.
Tuesday night (Nov.28), Mayor Gale Katchur and council presented Fleming with his five years of service reward in front of a large chamber audience.
"I really appreciated them taking the time to recognize me for that and I just want to make it known that I've really enjoyed my five years working with the City of Fort Saskatchewan," said Fleming. "Council's been great to me, the residents have been great to me and it was really special that they did that in public."
Fleming has been in the city manager's chair since July and served as interim manager since January. He previously served as the Infrastructure and Community Services general manager.
"If I could go back, I think it would be becoming the city manager, that's probably the highlight for me so far."
He received a certificate to mark his service anniversary as well as a gift certificate.
