Message from the Mayor

 

   

This last week I was on vacation and out of cell phone range for a few days so
I wasn’t surprised to get a call from Zane Logan, Powell’s city administrator. I often
get updates on PR issues, power outages, service issues, etc. I answered the phone
with a cheery “What’s up Zane?” only to hear the very somber news that a great man
and member of our city family had passed away earlier that morning. I was shocked,
saddened and am still having trouble believing he’s gone.


Many years ago in the War Surplus store, I heard of a gentleman who hunted
elk every fall in Area 41 in the Big Horn Mountains, usually one specific drainage. I
was looking for help then as a rookie bow hunter. I contacted Bill Winters for advice
and he was willing to share information about hunting the area. Bill and I spoke a
few times, but it wasn’t until I became a councilman in Powell that I truly got the
privilege of being Bill Winters’ friend. As I did my city work, Bill often spoke up at
city meetings lending his vast institutional knowledge and solid advice with a
friendly smile.


Last December Bill announced he would retire in January 2018. I was happy
for Bill, but a little sad for the city. I wonder how many cold winter days and nights
he spent on streets of Powell making sure our water flowed and the frozen pipes
were fixed as efficiently as possible. I knew after over 36 years with the city, Bill’s
presence would be missed. He was torn about retirement when we spoke about his
position as a Powell representative to the Park County Drug Court. He was actually
making sure he could continue to serve in that capacity. He was only on the board
for a few short years, but he loved being involved and trying to make a difference.
Bill was not afraid to speak of his history with alcohol and those people who stepped
in to help him when he needed it. I respected him immensely for being open, honest
and always willing to pay it forward.


Even in retirement Bill was a regular visitor of city hall, stopping in to chat
and stay current on the city business he missed. Bill’s life was cut far too short on
July 8 and will be a loss to the all who knew him. My thoughts and prayers go out to
his family and friends.


Bill, you will be missed by many in the City of Powell.
