With heavy hearts the City of Dadeville mourns the loss of Councilperson H. A. "Dick" Harrelson. Mr. Harrelson passed away Thursday afternoon, December 12th, 2019. Mr. Harrelson was always about doing business for the city that he loved. He was elected as a council member to represent Distrct 5 in 2016, and during his tenure, he was instrumental in getting several new pieces of equipment for various city departments; he worked diligently to get a new roof and paint job done at city hall. And he did it all in the most efficient and economical way there was to save the city's taxpayer dollars. There was never a task too large that he did not go at it full speed ahead until it was finished. Mr. Harrelson was excited that the courthouse square project was finally coming to fruition and he was looking forward to the finished look. He came to city hall every day to check in, talk city business, or just to talk, and he would always leave us with a chuckle in our hearts. Mr. Harrelson will be missed by everyone who worked with and knew him; he was our strong hold; our mentor; his work ethic was contagious. Dadeville has lost a dear friend indeed and a great council member. Councilperson Harrelson not only represented District 5, but he represented the entire City of Dadeville. Thank you Mr. Dick.
