Friday, June 30, was Pat Lucus’ last day as manager of Petro Plus in Browerville. Pat said that after five and one-half years of working at the station she is ready to spend more time visiting relatives and getting her own life in order. Pat was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a balloon by Co-owner Julie Mielke. We will miss Pat’s friendly attitude. Margaret Sovich will take over as manager.
The sewage treatment plant in Browerville went online in January 1992. It was built primarily for the Land O’ Lakes plant at a cost of $2.5 million. At this time there remains $473,524 debt on the bonds sold to cover the cost. It is hard to determine what the future will bring with the amount being dumped by Land O’ Lakes declining and they won’t know by how much until after the closing in September. City Administrator Severin Blenkush said he hopes that residents do not have to cover additional costs of operating the plant and that Land O’ Lakes will pay their fair share.
