STANFORD - Long-time chairman of the Lincoln County Industrial Development Authority, Bill Fox, announced his retirement this month, effective Dec. 31, the end of his current term.
Fox declined to comment, but his fellow board members said Fox was selfless in donating his time and efforts to the betterment of Lincoln County and will be missed.
"He's done an excellent job and all the board members are very, very thankful for all his hard work and dedication," said board member Jeff Ralston.
Fox has been a board member for more than 20 years.
Board members are appointed by Judge-executive Buckwheat Gilbert and Stanford Mayor Eddie Carter. Fox represented Stanford, so his replacement will be appointed by Carter.
