Bob Kiser, the head municipal engineer for Princeton, was asked to show up at a meeting Wednesday afternoon to review some park plans. He had no idea he was actually heading off to a gathering in his honor. Kiser will retire at the end of June after serving Princeton Township and the consolidated Princeton for 33 years. The recreation department dedicated a section of the Marchand Meadow garden next to the recreation department building to Kiser and named it “Kiser’s Korner.”
The recreation department staff wanted to find a way to celebrate Kiser’s work after he announced his retirement this winter.
“When Vikki and I thought of all that Bob has done for Princeton, we knew we needed to come up with something special to thank him,” Stentz said. “A permanent spot in Marchand Meadow seemed like a nice way to honor his legacy here.”
