Staff attended a retirement reception for John Sweet on January 17th. John has been the City Administrator at the City of Lyons since January 2002 and plans to retire March 30th. Throughout the years, John has been a strong advocate for the City of Lyons, the State of Kansas and KMEA/KMGA member cities. John will now have the time take long helicopter rides and embrace the gift he was given, a book entitled “How to Overcome Shyness”, with step-by-step instructions, exercises, and proven advice for dealing with shyness in any situation. We all wish John the best as he begins the next chapter in his life!
