“Carol has been an important part of our organization and is respected by the staff, governing bodies and advisory boards that she works with for the Cities of Garden City and Holcomb as well as Finney County,” Garden City Manager Matt Allen said. “Carol has been part of several major projects during her time with Neighborhood & Development Services as its Director and Assistant Director. She will be missed.”
