Soon to retire First State Bank President and CEO Rick Goedert is the latest inductee into the Bay County Business Hall of Fame. The ceremony occurred as part of the 136th annual  meeting of the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce held Tuesday, March 19 in Bay City.

Goedert is working toward reinvigorating Realtor Park, a small triangular space on the west side near Veterans Memorial Bridge. He added the park’s focus will be a massive steel structure showing a map-like depiction of the Saginaw River flowing out to the Saginaw Bay. Benches, walkways and low maintenance landscaping will also be part of the more than $70,000 initiative to brighten the view for motorists going in and out of town.

The project is organized by this year’s Leadership Bay County class.
