TELL CITY - Mary K. Cardinal, who served on Tell City's Economic Development Commission for 20 years, was honored Monday for her role in aiding city and county economic development.
Cardinal declined reappointment to another four-year term on the commission, but said she enjoyed her time. When appointed in 1990, Cardinal was the first woman to serve on the group.
The city council will fill the vacancy created by Cardinal's departure. A decision will be made March 1, and Ewing said it's important the board remain at full strength.
