Loudon public works director retires

I gave them a couple of weeks, I made it kind of quick, but I just decided if I dont make the decision and set a date then Ill be around here until Im too old, he said.
Elected officials and employees of both the city and Loudon Utilities Board gathered Friday to send Fagg off with a retirement party at the Lions Club Pavilion at Loudon Municipal Park.
I felt honored to be employed by the city of Loudon, but when you see you have friends that come and show their support of my retirement, I think its awesome, he said.
Jim Greenway, Loudon mayor, believes Fagg will be a tough one to replace.
He cares tremendously, Greenway said. He knows the people so well and they can call down there if they have an issue and Bill will address it and take care of it.
... Bill addresses all kinds of issues with the city that a lot of folks never see, he added. The reason they never see them is he gets them fixed before they become a major problem. Thats where were fortunate to have him. Hes more proactive than he was reactive.
Fagg said it may take some time to adjust to not coming in for work on Monday morning.
He hasnt kept track of many of the large projects he had a hand in, referencing the fountain in downtown Loudon as one that does stick out.
I dont like to say that Ive done this, he said. Its the public works department. I give credit to all employees for making up the departments and accomplishing projects.
