Sherburn: Help wanted at theater

SHERBURN - This will be the last weekend Sherburn's movie theater will be run by Julie Larson.

After missing last weekend, Larson submitted her resignation to the Sherburn City Council, citing personal reasons. While the council has an interium manager in place, the city is looking to hire a more permanent replacement.

"The most important thing is to have the theatre open," said Sherburn mayor Bob Roessler.

A committee has been formed to help with hiring a new manager.

During Monday's meeting, the council also reviewed the theater lease agreement, making a few minor changes, such as doubling the deposit on the building to $300. There was also language inserted as to community and school use of the facility on weekends, requesting a minimum of two weeks advanced notice to use the theater.

"Unless there is an act of God that makes them have to postpone and reschedule," Roessler said, referring to the blizzard cancellations this past school year. "My phones were ringing non-stop over that."

Those interested in managing the theater can contact Sherburn's City Hall at (507) 764 -4491. Applications will be available and resumes will be accepted later in the week.

In other business, the council accepted a bid for street work on West First and East Cargill streets for $185,361 from Civil Ag construction, a newer company that consists of Taplin Construction of Fairmont and Romsdahl Construction of St. James. The street work is scheduled to begin in mid to late August and be completed by Oct. 15.
