BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield business owner and mayor, Harvey L. Hall, will make his return to preside over Wednesday’s City Council meeting, just one month to the day after enduring a fall while leaving City Hall . Hall suffered a fractured hip and was hospitalized for one-week following the incident.
Mayor Hall’s recovery is progressing well, and he is expected to begin physical therapy within 4-6 weeks.
Hall made his first public appearance two weeks ago, delivering the commencement address at CSUB for the combined ceremonies of the Schools of Arts and Humanities; Business and Public Administration; and Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering.
As Bakersfield’s 25th Mayor, Hall is anxious to resume his full schedule of mayoral responsibilities. He has been keeping busy, working from his residence and putting in limited hours at his company, Hall Ambulance Service, Inc.
Mayor Hall is looking forward to reporting on the City of Bakersfield’s accomplishments of the past year at the annual State of the City luncheon, scheduled for Tuesday, July 15, at the Bakersfield Marriott at the Convention Center.
