RIO VISTA — Four members of the Rio Vista City Council bid adieu as public servants and welcomed the new council with open arms.

At Thursday evening’s council meeting, city officials old and new spent time praising one another’s service and accomplishments while living in the city of Rio Vista.

Among the council members leaving are Mayor Jan Vick, Councilwoman Janith Norman, Vice Mayor Jack Krebs and Treasurer Hale Conklin. Replacing them are Mayor Norman Richardson, Councilman David Hampton, Councilman James McCracken and Treasurer James Nordin.

Newly appointed Mayor Richardson also appointed Connie Boulware as his vice mayor. She is up for re-election in 2014.

It was a bittersweet moment for the members leaving. The council has faced many tough decisions together as it tried to tackle constant budgetary issues and a deficit.

Among their accomplishments, Vick noted, was the passing of Measure O this election, a 0.75 percent sales tax that “laid the groundwork for stability,” she said.

Vick, who’s served eight years on the council and an additional three years on the city’s Planning Commission, was sad to leave, but, like her fellow council members, had no plans of deserting Rio Vista.

“I’m not going anywhere,” Vick said. “(Rio Vista) is a wonderful place.”

The incoming council was met with excitement, both from the outgoing members and from a packed chamber room watching. By the end of the evening, the crowd and council members were on their feet clapping for the accomplishments of its former council and the potential future of the new.
