Newton Assistant City Manager and Planning Director Glenn Pattishall officially retired after more than 28 years with the city.
A reception was held in his honor Tuesday, and Newton City Manager Todd Clark took the opportunity to salute Pattishall's service and present him with a gift bag.
"If it weren't for Glenn, we wouldn't have the jobs we have in this county today," Clark said.
Newton City Council members, economic development officials, business leaders, city employees, city retirees and citizens wished Pattishall well in his retirement, which he said will include more time spent traveling.
