Council to honor attorney at meeting

The Woodstock Town Council will vote on a resolution of respect for Albert T. Mitchell during Tuesday’s meeting.

Mitchell served as the town’s attorney for 48 years. He also served as attorney in a private practice and as commonwealth’s attorney in Shenandoah County. He died at his home in Palmyra on Nov. 20.

Town Manager Angela Clem said the resolution is created to honor the service that Mitchell provided to the town and community over the years.

She added that the resolutions are usually created for individuals who have been in staff administration or have served as an elected official with a great deal of service in the community. The original signed resolution will be sent to Mitchell’s family.

The resolution of respect states, “Mr. Mitchell has served the Woodstock and Shenandoah County community in volunteer capacities, advocating for strong education, historic preservation and appreciation, and public safety.”

The Town Council meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Municipal Office Council Chambers.
