MCGREGOR (September 13, 2013)—McGregor’s city finance director Brent Bower , 60, has died in what evidently was a suicide.
He was found dead of a gunshot wound Thursday night at McGregor City Hall after leaving a public hearing on a proposed tax revenue increase at the City Hall Annex.
No further details were released Friday.
City Manager Keith Evans issued a brief statement late Friday afternoon in which he said, “It is never easy to lose a friend, much less a family member. We at the City of McGregor have lost both. City Finance Director Brent Bower ended his life Thursday evening, September 12. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and we ask that you respect the privacy of his family during this time of mourning.”
