Chuck will be missed by the Scandinavian community where he was active and responsible in his leadership role. Our thoughts are with his family.It is with great sadness that we share the passing of City employee, Chuck Higgins.

Please keep Chuck’s family in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time.
