Hamburg's supervisor, first K-9 German shepherd retiring

Steve Walters

Hamburg Supervisor Steven Walters isn't the only one stepping down from the town's public service.

Monday was the supervisor's last regular meeting; a brief year-end meeting is scheduled Dec. 28.

Walters said he has worked with 13 different board members, and there have been four governors and three county executives during his 12 years as supervisor.

"It's really been a pleasure to serve this community," Walters said.

After Walters gave his closing remarks, Police Chief Gregory Wickett said his department will have a retirement, too. Endy, the town's first K-9 German shepherd, has some physical problems and is retiring after an 8-year career in the Hamburg Police Department. The dog, born in Hungary, is 10.

"He's going to be calling it a career, he'll be going home with his handler," Wickett said. "We'll take him out for a cheeseburger or something."

Hopefully Walters gets a steak dinner, at least.
