Dick Gee To Serve As County Appointee On Hamilton County WWTA Board

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Former Signal Mountain Town Councilman Dick Gee was recently appointed by County Mayor Jim Coppinger to serve the remainder of an unexpired term on the Hamilton County WWTA Board.  The term concludes in June 2020.  

Mr. Gee has been an active member of the WWTA board since 2012 when he was appointed to serve as Signal Mountain’s representative. He holds a degree in mechanical engineering from Virginia Tech and prior to retirement was a financial consultant with Hillard Lyon Wealth Advisors. He has been a resident of the town since 1978.  Mr. Gee has served as councilman and mayor of the town of Signal Mountain.   

He recently married the former Melissa Westbrook and has two grown daughters and five granddaughters.   

County Mayor Coppinger said, “The WWTA provides critical services to our community.  They have a tremendous responsibility to keep our water and wastewater system safe and sanitary both now and in the future. It’s important to have members who are thoughtful and engaged in their representation on the board.  I appreciate Dick’s willingness to continue his service on the board.” 

"Having Dick’s knowledge and expertise is a real asset to the work of the WWTA,” said Hamilton County WWTA Executive Director Mark Harrison.  “As an engineer, financial consultant, and former elected official, he brings a very unique and diverse skillset to the board.  We appreciate his thoughtful questions and commitment to making our organization one of the county’s best.” 

A new representative from Signal Mountain has not yet been named.
