The flags at Belleville City Hall, as well as the Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre and Fire Station #1 have been lowered today to mark the death of former Belleville mayor Shirley Langer.

Mayor Neil Ellis stated in a media release that the city is “deeply saddened” to learn of the passing of Langer, who served as Mayor of the City of Belleville from 1991 to 1994. During this time, she focused on issues of development, supporting the arts, and was an avid environmentalist.
