Berkeley Lake celebrating retirement of long-time city marshal

Berkeley Lake officials and residents will soon join forces to celebrate Gene Rodgers who is retiring at the end of the month after 12 years as City Marshal. The public is invited to wish him the best in his retirement from 10 a.m. to noon Dec. 1 at City Hall, 4040 S. Berkeley Lake Road. In a recent Mayor’s Message to residents, Berkeley Lake Mayor Lois Salter noted, “I remember sending him home at the end of a very long day when Hurricane Irma came through and being unable to make him leave until he felt sure we’d all be okay. People like Gene are very rare, and I hope you’ll find the time to tell him so.”

The Berkeley Lake Homeowners Association is expected to make Rodgers an honorary member for life. Robert Adderly, who has been working with Rodgers, will take over as City Marshal.
