Councilors Jim Kleeburg and Ged Randall will be retiring from their seats effective January 6, 2020.
Jim Kleeburg joined the Council in January 2008, serving as the Mayor from January 2014 through January 2018. “I really enjoyed my time as Mayor and was honored to be a City representative for the Association of Idaho Cities," Councilor Kleeburg said.
 
Some of the projects Councilor Kleeburg said he was proud to be a part of include:
  • Creation of the Joint Airport Authority
  • Mountain Dew Skate Park
  • New Lewiston City Library
  • Nez Perce Drive Extension
  • Southway Roundabout
 
“I have been humbled and honored to be able to serve the citizens and taxpayers of the City of Lewiston," Councilor Kleeburg said. "I have always tried to be a wise steward with their dollars.” 
 
Ged Randall joined the Council in January 2012, providing a strong focus on community safety, infrastructure and economic development. "To be able to make progress in these areas, I have seen that collaboration and teamwork is essential," Councilor Randall said.

Both Councilor Kleeburg and Councilor Randall served as liaisons to the Lewiston City Council on numerous advisory boards and commissions. Their hours and commitment dedicated to these important groups helped to accomplish many great projects within the community. They both plan to continue to volunteer in the many opportunities that are available through the City of Lewiston.
