Carthage's new Community Development Director brings a lifetime of experience to the job.
Bob Livingston spent over five decades in the plumbing business in his home state of Pennsylvania. Since moving to Illinois, the 91 year-old has helped bring rural water service to Henderson County. He was a VISTA volunteer with that county's Economic Development Corporation for three years.
He said between his business experience and his work on the water district, he feels well-prepared for the new job.
