GREENFIELD — Former Mayor Brad DeReamer made his first appearance at a Greenfield City Council meeting since he left office two years ago, speaking up Wednesday for a resolution he feared would be defeated.
DeReamer, who now lives in Fishers, spoke in favor of a resolution that would formally make Hancock County Veterans Park a city park. Sporting a T-shirt from the 2010 dedication ceremony of the park, DeReamer said the city should take pride in the memorials and promote the park.
DeReamer, who was instrumental in getting the park completed during his term as mayor from 2008-11, said the park is his greatest accomplishment in Greenfield. He said he became worried when he heard rumblings the resolution might not pass.
