COSHOCTON – Debra Wallace, Coshocton City Council-at-Large, announced her resignation from Council effective Monday, Dec. 31. 

Wallace has served on City Council for 13 years on numerous Council committees. She currently serves on the Infrastructure and Insurance committees and chairs the Finance Committee.

“I am honored to have served the City through such financially difficult times.  While we didn’t always agree, Council and the Administration have worked through issues to keep the City in the black” Wallace said.  “Our local economy began to get squeezed long before the national economy, so we have been in a tough balancing act my entire time on Council.”

And still, in spite of so little discretionary money, she believes the City has been able to leverage private monies to accomplish many projects like the Himebaugh Park.

“I can’t say enough about the City’s department heads and how they cooperate and pitch in to get things done,” Wallace said. “We have first-class employees.”

Wallace is looking forward to having time for new endeavors especially raising money to implement a tree program for the City.
