On behalf of the entire Pequot Lakes City Council, its employees and the many residents of our community, I want to thank Mike Loven, our public works director, for 31-plus years of service to our city.
Last week, Mike advised us he will retire as of Friday, Sept. 7, 2018. He has been a quiet, steady presence all these years, and the historical knowledge Mike has of roads, parks and buildings will be exceedingly difficult to replace.
We wish Mike well in this new phase of his life. If you meet him on the street, I hope you will be sure to say, "Thanks for a job well done. You will be missed!"
