UPDATE: North Mankato approves new city administrator contract

(Continued)

NORTH MANKATO —

“Frankly in the years I’ve sat on Council, it seems to me that Wendell was underpaid,” said Norland, who noted that Sande didn’t request a higher salary. “The income was what he proposed to us. So, far be it for a council member to say, ‘Shouldn’t you be $3,000 higher?’ That was my take on it over the years: that he certainly was lower than he could have been.”

The council unanimously approved the contract.

The special afternoon meeting was called so that Harrenstein could receive the approved contract in time to submit his resignation at Monday night’s Eudora City Commission meeting, which he did, the Eudora Reporter reported on its website.

Dehen said Harrenstein’s starting date should be March 4. Sande resigned effective May 31.
