At Tuesday’s Windom City Council meeting, the council officially named Jim Smedsrud to be the city’s next street department foreman.
Foreman, who was already serving on the city’s street maintenance crew, takes a position that had been vacant since Jon Ketzenberg was named interim street superintendent in December. Ketzenberg was then appointed permanent street superintendent when Brian Cooley resigned from the job on Jan. 1.
Ketzenberg said Tuesday night that the city street department still needs to add one more maintenance position, filling Smedsrud’s former position, in the coming months. At Tuesday’s meeting the city council authorized Ketzenberg to advertise for the position.
