VIDEO: Mayor Cobb returns to work part-time

Williams Lake Mayor Walt Cobb suffered a heart attack in April, and on Monday, May 6 was back on the job

Williams Lake Mayor Walt Cobb is back at work — but only part-time.

Cobb suffered a heart attack on April 10.

After presenting himself at Cariboo Memorial Hospital’s emergency department that morning, he was transferred and had a stint installed at Kelowna General Hospital.

He returned home on the weekend and has been recuperating ever since.

On Monday, May 6, he was back on the job, and is attending the North Central Local Government Convention being held in Williams Lake this week.
