GEORGE ZEGOURAS

PLAQUE TEXTS:

  1. George Zegouras is remembered as being a tireless supporter of the City of Belleville with countless hours spent promoting the City wherever he went. His charisma with citizens and visitors alike is a major hallmark of his legacy. He loved this City of Belleville and its people. December 22, 1937 – October 1, 2012. (The plaque has been damaged by paint spray.)
  2. George Zegouras was known as “the Mayor of the people”. He served as a City Councillor from 1973 to 1980 and as Mayor from 1980 to 1991 and again from 2000 to 2003. George Zegouras was the Mayor when Belleville’s City Hall underwent a major renovation in 1988. That renovation expanded the capacity of City Hall to provide the municipality with the space it needed to continue to operate out of this historically designated building. Market Square was also renovated at that time and continues to house the Belleville Farmers’ Market as it has since 1816.
