Peterson settling in as City Administrator


Mon, Nov 2nd, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Features

While beginning her new role as the City Administrator of Lanesboro, Minn. as of August 24, 2015 Michele Peterson is not exactly new to the job.

Having served as Deputy Clerk since July 2011, Peterson has been familiar with the city office and the work it entails for some time. She states that she is “enjoying a new set of challenges” that come with the title of City Administrator but also says she is “very happy” in the position.

After graduating from Mayo High School in Rochester, Minn. she earned her bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Augsburg College.

Peterson states that the best part of her job is “the chance to meet with people and to talk with them and see the different viewpoints” on any given situation. She says she likes the “personal contact” that comes with her job.

Some of her duties as City Administrator are to set agendas for meetings, clerk for the various committee meetings and city council meetings as well as Lanesboro Public Utilities. Peterson also works with the city council and public utilities to assist in setting budgets.

Another important aspect of her job is “setting appropriate goals and working with the staff to make sure that the city is reaching its goals” once those goals have been determined.

Peterson explains “I am here to help look for information as far as long term goal planning for the city and trying to look ahead to the future to see what the needs are of the city, the residents and business owners” and be proactive rather than reactive.

When asked what makes Lanesboro so special Peterson replies “definitely the community - the people” that live in the area. She goes on to say “what I love to see and I think is so amazing to see is the community support of our school - it’s huge” and she realizes not all communities are that way.

She comments that she “loves to watch the homecoming parade where the whole town is here” and is so impressed by “everything they do for the youth and just to support each other, too” as members of the community.

Peterson states “I love the generosity and the support of the community” saying “when there are benefits hosted in town, the overwhelming support is amazing” and adds “I love that I get to be a part of that” and see the town come together for a worthy cause.
