In November, we said farewell to Temple Terrace City Council member Grant Rimbey after two years of dedicated service on the River Board. Councilman Rimbey grew up along the ‘middle’ river. Throughout his service, he demonstrated steadfast commitment to the protection the river and the interests of the citizens of Temple Terrace. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
