Outgoing Mayor Arthur Babitz (right) accepts a plaque adorned with a key to the city from City Manager Steve Wheeler at the conclusion of Monday night’s Hood River City Council meeting. Babitz has served as mayor since January 2009 and will be replaced in January by recently-elected mayor Paul Blackburn. Keys were also presented to outgoing Councilor Brian McNamara, who has served since 2011; Councilor Ed Weathers, who has served since 2010; and Councilor Carrie Nelson, who has served since 1999. The meeting was supposed to be the last for the mayor and councilors, but a brief special meeting will be held next Monday for the purposes of wrapping up the Waterfront Refinement Plan.
