The City of Girard would like to offer our condolences to the family of Jerry Staton. Jerry served as a council member 1985 to 1987 at which time he was appointed the Mayor and served as such until 2001.
During his mayoral reign, Jerry's accomplishments are listed below:
Renovation of the electric power plant.
Moved City Hall to a newer building.
Built a new Fire Station.
Built a new swimming pool.
Renovated and added to the Girard Carnegie Library.
Encouraged and developed economic development.
Industrial park expansion
Golf course renovations.
It has been a pleasure to have such a community caring person to represent the City of Girard for as many years as the previous Mayor Staton. Thank you Jerry for your years of service both to the City of Girard and to the community. You will be missed.
