From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):
The Pueblo Board of Water Works Tuesday voted to rename its headquarters the Alan C. Hamel Administration Building at 319 W. Fourth St. Hamel, the executive director since 1982, officially ended his 52-year career the same day at the water board…
Far from speechless, Hamel then proceeded to talk about his career at the water board, giving credit to the employees who worked for him and the board. He also praised present and past boards for allowing him to serve outside roles in state government and professional groups. “The board has been farsighted in letting us look on the outside to form partnerships,” Hamel said.
A reception recognizing Hamel’s career is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. Aug. 29 at the Olde Towne Carriage House at the Riverwalk, 102 S. Victoria Ave.
