A familiar face won't be apart of Fort Saskatchewan City Council after this fall's election.
After three terms on council, totaling 10 years of service, Stew Hennig is not seeking re-election.
"When I first started council I was looking for someway to give back to the community, I had been a very avid volunteer for the previous 30 or 35 years and I thought helping to make some decisions that would benefit the community would be a good thing," Hennig said.
Last election, Hennig told family members this would be his final term. He wants to travel and spend more time with his grandkids.
"The other part is, I felt as a council and as individual councillor, we helped to achieve a lot of things, but it's time for fresh ideas and new folks to come in and help with those ideas."
A few of the things Hennig is most proud of is council's accomplishments with affordable housing, senior's housing and rebuilding city hall to make it a one-stop-shop city for residents.
Even though he won't be on council, he's still planning on remaining involved.
"This is home, and yes I will still be very active with the Rotary Club and volunteering other places, people will still see me out and about."
As far as the incoming council, Hennig hopes to see the recreation facilities put to good use and to continue to improve the social programs.
