WEST HAVEN, Feb. 28, 2019 — Mayor Nancy R. Rossi congratulates Director William P. “Bill” Slater on his retirement from the Department of Parks and Recreation during a reception attended by dozens of co-workers Thursday, Feb. 28, at City Hall.
Rossi presented a citation to Slater for “41 years of dedicated service” to the city, including the last 25 years as Park-Rec’s director.
He was also cited by the mayor for providing “dynamic and engaging programs to meet the recreational needs of our community, enhancing the quality of life for thousands of Westies.”
Slater was hired Feb. 21, 1978, under the administration of Democratic Mayor Robert A. Johnson.
