Dendinger honored for years of Ec Dev. Work

HARTINGTON —Long-time Hartington Community Development Corporation Board member Bill Dendinger stepped down from the Board Wednesday.
Dendinger’s three-year term on the board expired and he chose not to seek another term.
His decision ends a 38-year tenure on the Board, which has brought numerous industries, and jobs and housing developments to the community over the years.
In that timeframe, the Community Development group has:
• worked to expand the Hartington Industrial Park,
• helped to get a new community recreation complex built here.
• helped to get a city sales tax in place for community economic development.
• created the Westfield Acres housing development.
• began the planning for a new industrial park 

• began the planning for the new Westfield Acres II housing development.
• helped to attract numerous businesses and industry to expand here.
• worked to help in the completion of the Hartington flood control project.
Dendinger served as the Board’s president for many years.
In Recognition and appreciation for his years of dedication to the Board, he was presented with a plaque at last Wednesday’s annual Hartington Economic Development meeting.
Community Development Board spokesman Dan Kathol said all of Dendinger’s hard work was much appreciated.

“You worked hard for the benefit of Hartington, while at the same time involving yourself in many other community leadership and service positions,” Kathol said. “Over this span of time, your tireless devotion and work have helped to make Hartington a strong and vibrant community.
