At the Oct. 18 City Council meeting, Mayor Phil Smith presented Joan Benz and her family with a plaque honoring her late husband Paul Benz for his years of civic support and charitable contributions.
He is probably best remembered throughout Tehachapi as the owner of Benz Sanitation and Benz Propane. His many achievements included the 40-acre Benz Youth Sports Complex located east of downtown Tehachapi off Tehachapi-Willow Springs Rd.
The Tehachapi City Council meets on the first and third Mondays of the month at Wells Education Center located at 300 S. Robinson Street, Tehachapi.
