MACEDON — Lock 30 Chief Operator Doug DeRue has worked on the canal system for 20 years and will now retire.
Lock 30 was a very special place to many because of Doug's expertise and because he made everyone who came to Lock 30 feel like they were at home, Mayor Marie Cramer said.
On Dec. 4, Doug retired to now enjoy another chapter in his life. The village of Macedon Board of Trustees wanted to do something special and presented Doug with an Award of Appreciation at the Dec. 11 board meeting.
“Thank you Doug for your great service at Lock 30 and for appreciating the fact that village life matters,” Cramer said.
