New Brighton asks residents to limit water use

Warm weather and well work main concerns

With unseasonably warm weather and a return of outdoor water usage for gardens, car washes and kiddie pools just around the corner, New Brighton set the city’s water conservation status to yellow, as of March 11.

The city supplies residents with water pumped from underground aquifers, and according to city manager Dean Lotter, two of the city’s four wells require preventative maintenance, which he said should be done now, rather than later. 

The yellow conservation status means New Brighton residents using municipal water will not be permitted to water yards and gardens between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. and will be required to follow an odd/even sprinkling ban. Residents will also be prohibited from filling swimming pools or washing cars.

Local 15-year death investigation rekindled by reconstruction of victim’s face

Police ask for help identifying woman 

A woman who was found dead in New Brighton 15 years ago has never been identified, but now the image of her face has reemerged through facial reconstruction technologies, and though it’s only a likeness, police are hoping it will lead to new information in the cold case. 

The investigation of the woman’s death began in the fall of 2000, when her body was found by two hikers just off a little-used path in Long Lake Regional Park. Police believe the corpse had been lying there for at least two months by the time it was found Sept. 15.

The New Brighton Department of Public Safety requested assistance from the FBI last year, specifically to have them reassemble characteristics of the woman’s face using facial reconstruction. The image was released to the public last week.

Precinct party caucuses are a week away

Parties prepare for Super Tuesday

Precinct party caucuses are a week away on March 1 — Super Tuesday — when voters in Minnesota and 12 other states will caucus for presidential candidates, among other party business.

The events, which begin at 7 p.m., are run completely by state political parties and deal with internal party business so caucus rules and happenings will vary, district by district.

Roseville Review area Republicans and DFLers who plan to caucus likely live in either House District 42B or 66A; officials in both parties are expecting lots of caucus participation during this presidential election year.
