On Thursday November 3 2011, Southaven Mayor and Board of Aldermen dedicated the Getwell Road Water Treatment Facility to former Utilities Director Chris Hadaway. Chris began working for the city in 1987 and served as Director of the Utility Department from 2001 until his death in 2009.
A new sign inscribed with “Chris Hadaway Water Plant” has been built on the site and was unveiled by Chris’ family during the dedication service. Mayor Davis shared several memories of Chris and stated that he hoped people would remember Chris’ dedication to his family and community when they see the sign. Members of Chris’ family, friends, coworkers and citizens were on hand for this event.
