Faribault City Council Members on AM Minnesota Today
Faribault City Council members Royal Ross and Peter Van Sluis are scheduled to be guests on today's KDHL AM Minnesota program at 9:30 a.m.
We will talk about the Highway 60 reconstruction project. New parking areas in downtown Faribault. See if they have any economic development news for us. Of course the expansions of a number of different manufacturers in Faribault was great news for the community. Now they need to fill all those positions.
The city is making a concerted effort to get more apartments in the community because they say that is the preference by a number of people.
The city's website explains Faribault's City Government structure.
"The City of Faribault operates under the "Council-Administrator Plan." The City Council exercises the legislative power of the City and determines all matters of policy. The Mayor presides as chair at meetings of the Council and votes as a member. The Mayor is also head of the city government for all ceremonial purposes. The City Administrator is the head of the administrative branch of the City government and is responsible to the Council for the proper administration of all affairs relating to the City."
