Cass County: Commissioners name replacement for retiring engineer

Cass County commissioners Tuesday, Aug. 16, selected Darrick Anderson from among seven applicants to succeed retiring County Engineer David Enblom.

Anderson will join the county no later than Nov. 21 and work with Enblom until Enblom officially retires in April 2017.

In addition to being a registered professional engineer in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin, Anderson holds a restricted individual sewage treatment system designer license in Minnesota.

He has managed the transportation construction group for Bolton and Menk Inc. in Baxter since September 2012. Previously, he worked for Westwood Professional Services of Baxter and St. Cloud, and Landecker and Associates Inc. of Pequot Lakes and Walker.

Anderson has a diverse background in highway design and construction.

He has been chairman of the board of trustees at Zion Lutheran Church in Brainerd. He enjoys hunting and fishing for recreation.

He will be appointed to serve to May 2017, the state-set month for county boards to appoint highway engineers. At that time, the county board will decide whether to extend his appointment to a regular four-year term.
