- George Diebel, unknown - 1922
Little is known about George Diebel’s early life including when and where he was born. In 1876 he became a partner with Cyrus Bricker in the “Great Corner Store” in Unit #1 of the Commercial Block at King and Erb Street. In 1905, upon the death of former mayor Christian Kumpf, Diebel became Waterloo’s new postmaster, a position he held until his death in 1922. Diebel sat on town council as an alderman from 1889-1891 and again in 1893. His two-year mayoral term began in 1899. In that year, the new Municipal Act reduced the representation on Council to the mayor and six instead of twelve councillors. With Diebel as mayor, Waterloo established its own Water Commission in 1899 to supply the town with water that had previously been supplied by Berlin (Kitchener). In that year council also petitioned the Governor-General “praying for the erection of suitable public buildings in the Town of Waterloo” also striking an agreement with Berlin to purchase land for extending Moore Avenue and Waterloo Street. The following year council aided the Goderich Railway Company by approving the extension of rail lines through the town. From the City of Waterloo Website 2005
