At its June 18 meeting, Milton’s City Council surprised Bill Hayes, a veteran law enforcement officer who is retiring from the force to begin a new career as a code enforcement officer for the city.

Hayes, who has served Milton since its inception, was invited to the meeting under the guise of being sworn in as a code enforcement officer. However, he didn’t know that council and the police and fire services were going to honor him for his 43 years of law enforcement.

Hayes was given a proclamation recognizing his four decades of service and a plaque commemorating his dedication to residents. He was then congratulated by a number of officers, firefighters, city staffers and elected officials.
