On behalf of Placentia Town Council and staff, I extend heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of former Mayor William Hogan on his recent passing. Former Mayor Hogan served the residents of the amalgamated community of Placentia passionately from 1997 to 2001 and from 2005 – 2013 but his presence was felt throughout the community long before and during the amalgamation process.
