President Craig Beyl's Final Meeting

On April 8, 2015, Craig Beyl concluded his Bellevue political career, by leading the last meeting as the Village President before President elect Steve Soukup takes the position. Mr. Beyl was elected as Town Supervisor in 2001 before becoming President in 2006.  During Mr. Beyl's tenure, the Village population grew by nearly 50%, and he worked hard to promote long range planning and professionalism towards the economic development of the community.

Mr. Beyl served on the Plan Commission, and was instrumental in the creation of the Village's first Tax Incremental Finance District, creation of the Central Brown County Water Authority, and establishment of new community facilities such as the Public Safety Building, playgrounds, parks and trails, and extensive infrastructure improvements to streets and utility systems.

Mr. Beyl was presented with a commendation and commemorative clock by Trustee Adam Gauthier during the meeting.

"One of the things I am most proud of is how we all work together to live up to the standards of our Village Mission Statement.  If we all keep that in mind, we have, and will make the Village a Great Place to Grow" said Mr. Beyl after accepting his commendation for 15 years of dedicated service.

We wish Mr. Beyl a wonderful and well earned retirement.
