After 27 years of service to the people of the Town of Ponoka and Ponoka County, Ted Dillon is retiring from the town on September 4.
“On behalf of the town I want to thank Ted Dillon for his years of service and commitment to the residents and businesses of the Town of Ponoka,” said Mayor Rick Bonnett. “His work was critical in en- hancing our Protective and Emergency Services over the last 27 years, including his work with the County and our Cree Nations neigh- bours.”
Ted is a familiar face to everyone. He and his wife
Barb are long-time Ponoka residents. In addition to his work as director, Ted is of- ten seen flipping burgers at community barbecues, keeping the fire going at winter events to help young and old stay warm, and vol- unteering alongside other volunteer firefighters in the town at a variety of events. We know everyone joins us to thank Ted Dillon for his decades of dedication to all he served. With this notice, he gives the town time to recruit a new fire chief, to ensure a smooth transition for the town and while he prepares for retirement this fall.
