If you've lived in the Town of Niagara long enough, you've more than likely heard of, or ran into, Jim Walsh.
Walsh, who was building inspector for 20 years, a consultant to the building inspector, and a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals for the past 10-plus years, has a hefty resume in the Town of Niagara.
On Tuesday night, at the town's Zoning Board of Appeals meeting, though, Walsh called it a career.
Of serving in the town for so many years, Walsh said, "The Town of Niagara is great. They've been very good to me. Everything has been good here."
Walsh said he always wanted to serve in the town and was determined to do so back in the day.
Over his time in the town, Walsh has seen great things occur, and he said, under his jurisdiction, a couple things that developed greatly were the Fashion Outlets Mall and the widening of Military Road, to name just a few.
At the end of the meeting, Walsh said, "I appreciate being on this board. I tried to get around to everything, but sometimes that is a little difficult." Then in Walsh fashion, he made the final motion of the evening.
