NORTH MANKATO —
As with Sande’s contract, Harrenstein’s requires the city to cover the cost of subscriptions and memberships to local civic organizations, along with state and national organizations related to his job. In Harrenstein’s agreement, the city also agrees to cover travel and lodging expenses for attendance at conferences of state and national municipal associations.
Dehen originally expected to present a negotiated contract to the council at its regular meeting on Jan. 22. The decision to hold a special meeting Monday is motivated by the Eudora council’s scheduled Monday night meeting, he said.
If the North Mankato Council approves the agreement Monday afternoon, it can be signed and faxed to Harrenstein in time for him to submit his resignation at the Eudora Council’s night meeting, Dehen said.
“Then he can give his notice at that meeting and get here March 1,” he said. “... Otherwise, we’d have to wait another month.”
