     After eight years in office, Homer Mayor Jim Hornaday has made his mark. A former judge known for his sharp wit and no-nonsense approach to government, Hornaday will take part in his last Homer City Council meeting Monday night. 

     The council will meet in a special meeting, with the express purpose of transferring power from Hornaday to mayor-elect Beth Wythe. 

     The council officially certified the results of the October 2nd election at its last meeting. 

     At that same meeting, several people got a head start on saying goodbye to Hornaday, including Cook Inletkeeper’s Bob Shavelson.

     "We have different viewpoints on most issues but the thing I've really been impressed with, Jim, is your work on the Climate Action Plan," said Shavelson.

     Homer City Manager Walt Wrede also took a moment to say goodbye to the mayor

     "We've had a fun eight years," said Wrede. "We didn't always agree on everything but ... we had a lot of fun disagreeing. Good luck in all your future endeavors and hopefully, we're going to see you around."

     Several council members said they would save their remarks thanking Mayor Hornaday for Monday night, his last official council meeting as mayor.
