“I’m in my 40th year of service and have not missed any regular meetings,” Lowe, 85, said. “That is 470 meetings so far. … I think the greatest thing in the world is to know when your time is up. I’ve got to spend more time with my family and it’s time for me to go. I offer my best wishes to each and every one of you [on the board] and my staff. Thanks so much for 40 good years."
Chairman John Eaves thanked Lowe for his service to the residents of north Fulton.
“It is with some regret that I get the news that he is retiring from the board,” Eaves said.
Lowe also served on the Atlanta-Fulton County Water Board and on the Fulton County Pension Board. He has advocated for support for Grady Memorial Hospital.
