The choir had just finished its spring concert, and wasn’t yet gearing up for the holiday shows. The group’s leaders were discussing how it should disband, agreeing that costs were too high and some of the singers could no longer stand for an entire performance.
The revered director suggested a discreet exit, without bows or encores.

Bigger budget, taxes somewhat steady in North St. Paul

The North St. Paul City Council on Tuesday, Dec. 17, unanimously approved the city’s 2014 budget, keeping steady the total amount property owners pay for day-to-day city operations.
“We’ve spent probably about seven or eight workshops on the budget,” Mayor Mike Kuehn said at the meeting. “It was a great process.”
The expected local tax rate went down slightly, and the average household will pay less in taxes in the coming year. In general, owners whose property values went up are expected to pay more in property taxes.

With ice still too thin to skate on, most of the action at Casey Lake in North St. Paul is bubbling beneath the surface.
City staff recently installed an aeration system at the lake, which is surrounded by sports courts, trails and a playground. Air is now being mechanically pumped into the water to keep up oxygen levels, helping native Minnesota fish stay alive over the winter to boost fishing and keep out the common carp.

North St. Paul council considers data-driven development

North St. Paul’s leaders are considering a $50,000 proposal to help them track what area residents eat, drink and buy and how they can use that information to attract and support retailers.

The Economic Development Authority will review the proposal in January.
