North Mankato City Administrator John Harrenstein.

“Last year we had a lot of good accomplishments. Specifically, adding property out in the industrial park and locating Blue Star Power Systems as well as Palmer Bus Services to the park. As far as the work in the community. Moving through projects even though we had a false start with the bidding process on swim facility, getting that back on track. Then just some bread and butter projects like Jefferson Avenue reconstruction. It was a good year.”

Harrenstein’s yearly salary will jump to $128,076.
