Edward Phalen was a former soldier that settled along a creek that flowed between Phalen Lake and the Mississippi River.  In 1838, he was discharged from Fort Snelling.  He took a series of claims around St. Paul and lived in a cabin about a mile away from the other settlers.

Fire department is struggling to fill its ranks

Despite a growing population, Lake Elmo city officials say a wise move might be to downsize to one fire station and change the suburb’s firefighting staffing model. 

The city council members plan to discuss the possibility of shuttering one of the community’s two aging fire halls at their next meeting on Wednesday, March 2. 

About four years ago, the city council was considering replacing an outdated fire engine, and before making that decision city staff began researching other volunteer fire departments in similar-sized suburbs. They eventually did replace the fire engine, but their research led them to an unexpected realization.
