Dewey-Humboldt council expresses thanks to John Dibble
With the resignation of Councilman John Dibble, Dewey-Humboldt Mayor Terry Nolan and Councilman Dennis Repan share their words of thanks for Dibble's work with the town.

Dennis Repan: "Serving with John has been a real pleasure to me. In a lot of ways we are very much alike. As I got to know John, I understood that not only was he just a great everyday guy, but he is a man of integrity and honesty. He has pride in his town, he has pride in his state as evidenced by the activities he has done outside of council, and, of course, his pride of his country as evidenced by his service to our country.

"John had a good sense of politics, especially when it came to our state. His historical political recall was uncanny at times and always made for great conversations. While we disagreed on minor details as to matters for the town, he was always ready to at least listen, and more often than not, come up with other perspectives.

"John's unselfishness in taking on the various civic activities that he did, I think made our state just a little bit better place for all of us to live. I understand why he had to resign from the council, but as far as I am concerned, he has left a real void as far as our council is concerned and also certainly to this town. He is going to be missed."

Mayor Terry Nolan said he and Dibble worked together on an early draft for the first community park. After attending a conference, they came back, put together a grant proposal, and the next day found a corporation willing to fund it.

"Mr. Dibble was a quiet council member who reviewed and studied the issues, listened closely, and spoke intelligently. When he made a decision and voted on an issue, it was his own, without being influenced by outside sources. The Dewey-Humboldt town council and staff will miss him immensely."

Following this past week's acceptance of Vice Mayor John Dibble's resignation, the Dewey-Humboldt Town Council is looking to fill Dibble's vacant seat by early December, and five seats in its primary election in March.

Dibble's Oct. 31 letter states his resignation is based on advice from his doctor for health reasons. It also reads, "My apologies to the council and to those citizens who voted for me; for whose faith in me I appreciate more than they could possibly know."

Councilman Dennis Repan called Dibble "a man of integrity and honesty," and someone who had pride in the town, state and his country.

Mayor Terry Nolan also expressed his gratitude to Dibble saying he would miss the vice mayor sitting on his right-hand side.

"When he makes a decision, you know he has thought it through," Nolan said.

The council decided at Tuesday's meeting to accept applications for Dibble's vacant seat until 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26, and would appoint a candidate at the Dec. 4 council meeting.

Candidates must be 18 years or older and reside in Dewey-Humboldt for at least one year.

In the upcoming March primaries, candidates for mayor or council may pick up their packets beginning yesterday, Nov. 13, for the position of mayor (2-year term), three council seats (4-year terms), and Dibble's seat (2-year term). They have until 5 p.m. on Dec. 12 to file their paperwork. Candidates who receive a majority of all votes cast at the primary election on March 12, 2013, will be declared elected without running in the general election on May 21.

A candidate orientation runs tonight from 5:30-6:30 in council chambers at Town Hall, 2735 S. Highway 69, Suite 12, Humboldt.
