The certificate is awarded to municipal officials that have completed 25 years of public service. Durkin was a trustee for six years before being elected mayor, where he was recently re-elected to his 10th two-year term. Trustees Marta Genovese, Craig Westergard and Sarah Oral were present, as well as village employees. Durkin’s wife Diane was in the audience and was presented with a bouquet of white roses.
