Westlake sure has changed in the last 27 years.
That was Mayor Dennis Clough’s message to Westshore Chamber of Commerce members during his State of the City address at LaCentre on March 13. Since Clough was elected in 1986, the city has undergone a period of major growth – residential, commercial and municipal.
In preparing his remarks, Clough looked back on the city’s needs in his first year in office. At that time, he felt that Westlake most needed strong financial management – not surprising, given Clough’s accounting background.
