Commissioner Retires After 27 Years

Marilynn Ogden
has served as a Water and Light Commissioner since 1989, for a total of 9 terms.  She has decided not to serve a 10th term and has retired from her position as of 12/31/15. 

Marilynn has helped lead the Water and Light Department through many large projects, including the recovery from the 1997 flood.  During her terms, 2 new substations and our Distribution Service Center were built.  She was also instrumental in making the decision for the Department to become a member of the Minnesota Municipal Power Agency. 

We want to thank Marilynn for 27 years of dedicated service to the Department!
