Council deals with art commission business, creates parking study groupBy John TorgrimsonMonday, May 14, 2001

After six years with the Lanesboro Police Department, three as Chief of Police, John Carlin will step down as the city’s top law enforcement official. His last day on the job was May 12.

In announcing his resignation at Monday’s city council meeting, Carlin said that he has really enjoyed working with the city and the people of Lanesboro.

“But I am at a point where I am not running the department the way that I want to,” Carlin said by way of explanation. “So, I am getting out.”

The telecommunications firm would then have the right to renew the agreement for two more five year periods. Any increases in rates would be based on increases to the Consumer Price Index.

The number of times that Midwest Wireless would be able to renew the contract was a sticky point with some council members. Midwest wanted to have the agreement for five, five year periods, or 25 years. But Council members Peggy Hanson and Hal Cropp thought that this was too long.

Andy Bobryzke, representing Midwest Wireless, was quick to agree to the three term period, noting that this would meet h .....
