$1.5 million GSL ECFE/SE building addition set to start, finish in 2013
By Rich Glennie Editor fter spending about $800,000 to replace two gym floors in the Panther Field House, replace part of a roof, replace windows and doors on the Lincoln Jr. High building, redo the north entrance and a garage addition to the high school in the last year, the Glencoe-Silver Lake School District is eyeing its next project for this year — the $1.5 million addition onto the Lincoln Jr. High. The addition will house the district’s programs for its youngest learners — the Early Childhood Family Education/Early Childhood Special Education (ECFE/ECSE) and Learning Readiness programs. Work is scheduled to begin in May and be completed by the end of the calendar year, according to GSL Superintendent Chris Sonju. The $1.5 million addition will be funded by a $1 million bond and $500,000 from the school district’s reserves. The impacts of the $1 million bond on district property taxes are still being worked on, Sonju said. Prior to construction beginning, however, the final designs, contract documents and the bidding process need to be completed. Bids may be awarded in April, Sonju said. Sonju said if all goes according to plan, the new addition will be occupied over the Christmas holiday break. The move will consolidate the early learning programs at one location on the northwest corner of the Lincoln school building. But Sonju said the ECFE program will be moved to the Lincoln building before school starts in the fall, and its current location in the Helen Baker Elementary School will be freed up for additional classroom space for a sixth section of first graders next school year. A lack of space at Helen Baker is the driving force for the addition, Sonju said. He emphasized that the addition is in line with the district’s bigger vision for a campus Diagram courtesy of Glencoe-Silver Lake School District at Lincoln-high into another classroom as well as rooms for The Early Childhood Family Education/Early school some day and the closure Childhood Special Education addition will be on specialists.

Street improvements front, center in ’13
By Rich Glennie Editor fter a quiet 2012, the city of Glencoe has a lot on its plate this year and into 2014 concerning street improvements, according to City Administrator Mark Larson. The biggest of the projects will be the over $3 million Morningside Avenue extension planned to start in 2014 (see related article on page 7), but there are other projects on the drawing board as well. Phase one of a multi-phase comprehensive street improvement plan kicks in this year with about $2.5 million in improvements scheduled to streets in the west one-third of the city. Most of the phase one involves crack filling, sealcoating and street overlay work that “causes the least inconvenience,” Larson said. The phase one costs are estimated at about $2.5 million. Phase two is more extensive, and expensive, street reconstruction projects that also includes replacing underground utilities, like sanitary and storm sewers and water lines. The bulk of the work will be in the southwest corner of Glencoe, mainly the Lincoln Park area, which is one of the older sections of the community. “Phase two will be bigger,” Larson said, and will cost about $4 million. But he said the work would take one construction season to complete, and it will be an inconvenience to homeowners in that part of the city. That work is not scheduled, yet, but could happen in 2014. To pay for the first two phases of work, the city is looking at using water and wastewater utility funds, state aid highway funds and improvement bonds to replace debt coming off the city’s books in the next two years. Larson said the old debt-for-new debt formula works out to be about a wash. The old debt includes about $150,000
A
coming off in 2014 and more in 2015 from old subdivision bonds from the 1990s. The other big debt coming to an end is the bond for the wastewater treatment plant expansion in 1994. That amounts to another $280,000 a year. The current debate, Larson said, is how to assess a portion of the work to property owners. Special assessments need to generate about 20 percent of the funds in order to issue the bonds, he added. Larson said the city’s assessments policy in the past called for the city to assume 100 percent of the storm sewer costs, and the homeowner assume 100 percent of the cost for service lines from the street main into the owner’s home. At question is how to assess the water and sanitary sewer mains in the streets. City Council will work on that assessment policy before phase two kicks in, possibly in 2014 or 2015.
Liquor store
But streets are not the only project on the city’s plate this year. Also being looked at is the long-anticipated expansion of the municipal liquor store, estimated to cost about $350,000. That is expected to happen sometime in 2013. Larson said the architects have given the city some schematics of the project that will expand the liquor store into the adjacent former city hall offices on 10th Street. The plans include a doubling of the product floor space and tripling of cooler space for the liquor store. Larson said the idea also is to have a “beer cave” concept . He explained that a “beer cave” involves the beer delivery person hauling in the beer cases on a pallet, the pallet is placed inside a walk-in cooler, and customers walk into the cooler to select their beer. Larson said the concept saves time and money in having to handle the product once instead of twice. Currently, the liquor store does not have a loading dock and the beer is hauled off the truck by hand and into the building, and then hauled by hand again into the upright coolers. To pay for the expansion work, the liquor store profits will be used. Larson said that still allows the city to use some of those liquor store profits to pay off the current City Center debt.

The Buffalo Highland hiking/biking trail opened for use late last fall and stretches two miles east from Morningside Avenue in Glencoe to County Road 1. It is the first of three phases that were originally announced that would connect Glencoe to Plato. The second phase could occur in 2016, if local funding is found, but the third phase remains in doubt. was installed, and this year’s lawn should look a lot better, Larson said.
Trail system
Last year saw the completion of the two-mile Buffalo Highland hiking-biking trail from Morningside Avenue in Glencoe east to Country Road 1, running parallel to Highway 212. The $300,000 project cost the city only $7,000, Larson said. The rest came from federal enhancement money. Larson said the city and county have jointly applied for DNR Trail Grant funds to pay the local share of phase two, which will take the trail another two miles east toward Plato, go under Highway 212 to the north side and back track to Boone Avenue. The city has procured federal enhancement money for the project in 2016, and the trail grant application is for $150,000 to cover the local share, Larson said. The phase two cost is about $400,000. That may be where the trail ends, Larson said. The trail would connect into Boone Avenue and go into Plato near the Blue Jay Stadium.
Airport
Another project slated for 2014 will be the reconstruction of the Vernon Perschau Memorial (Glencoe Municipal) Airport and parallel runway at a cost of $1.6 million to $1.7 million. Larson said 90 percent of the cost is coming from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The city’s share will be about $160,000 to $170,000. Larson said the airport will be shut down for about a month for the work to be done.
City parks
Last year saw the replacement of Park Shelter No. 2 at Oak Leaf Park, after it was condemned when it was discovered the support beams for the shelter had rotted. A check of the other shelter houses indicated they were still in good shape, Larson said. Also in the park, Larson said the idea of a campground at Oak Leaf Park has not disappeared, even though a Department of Natural Resources (DNR) grant had been denied. Larson said the new idea is to utilize the ring road around the park, and incorporate the camp sites along the ring road. It was estimated the cost would be about $100,000, and the sites would be interspersed throughout the park to blend in with the park’s aesthetics. The main cost would be to expand the restrooms to include showers for the campers, Larson said. With reconstruction of streets planned, Larson said the materials from those projects would be used to build the camp site pads at Oak Leaf.
Other city issues
Larson said the next fire department truck purchase may be a used snorkel truck that could cost up to $500,000. A new one would cost about $1 million, he added. The purchase would be shared by the city and the townships within the department’s fire district. The townships would pay about 22 percent of the cost, Larson said, and the township association has supported the purchase, which could occur in late 2013 or 2014, depending on the availability of a used truck. The current snorkel truck was purchased in the 1980s.
City Center
Last year, the City Center was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and Larson said that qualified the facility for Legacy funding for such things as finishing the north side of the building’s exterior and finishing two restrooms on the west end of the facilities’ first floor. Also on the agenda for the City Center is landscaping work for the courtyard. Larson said the money is in hand, and the work will begin this spring. Last fall, the grass areas around the City Center were “over seeded and fertilized,” after the new sprinkling system City Administrator Mark Larson

Miller Manufacturing: It just keeps adding more space, more jobs
By Rich Glennie Editor recent tour of Miller Manufacturing’s newly expanded facilities in Glencoe gave the impression that space is filling up quickly, not only outward, but upward. The newly opened addition — 25,000 square feet of warehouse storage space — “was filled in 12 hours,” said Miller Manufacturing CEO Dan Ferrise prior to the tour. In parts of the facility, inventory was stacked to the ceiling, towering over the aisles, and gave the feeling of walking through a canyon. There were even mini-traffic jams as forklifts scurried through the aisles, honking at the intersections, warning other drivers and pedestrians to beware. And additions are not done, yet. A 60,000-square-foot distribution center expansion is in the plans for next year, Ferrise said. The expansions and robust employment figures have caught the attention of politicians as well. Ferrise led the tour for U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., who was in Glencoe in February to update Miller’s management as well as city and county officials on happenings in Washington, D.C.

Miller Manufacturing, along with owner Dennis Frandsen, also were honored by the city as its Manufacturer of the Year in October 2012. Seventh District U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., also toured the facility, and at the time called Minnesota’s manufacturing sector the “pride of the 7th Congressional District.” So how does Miller Manufacturing continue to add jobs, while many others around the state and country are shedding manufacturing jobs?
“Since Miller’s move out to Glencoe in 2005, we have grown our business by over 60 percent and added over 100 fulltime employees,” said Ashley Lenz, marketing communications director for Miller Manufacturing. “This facility now employs up to 185 full- and part-time employees at various times throughout the year and continues to grow. “We have a ‘healthy growth’ strategy that consists of a focus on developing new products for new markets in new

channels through a balance of both organic growth and acquisition,” Lenz said. Miller Manufacturing took advantage of the state’s JOBZ program when it first arrived in Glencoe in 2005 and merged several of its other Minnesota and Wisconsin plant operations into the former NordicTrack facility. The facility had been vacant for a decade. The JOBZ program required the addition of 11 full-time employees to Miller Manufacturing’s work force. It added 61. JOBZ required those jobs be paid at least $10.23. The pay is $12.30 now. JOBZ required the company invest $3.2 million in the former Nordic Track facility. Instead, the company invested $4 million by the end of 2006, and has continued to invest ever since. Miller Manufacturing also had added new products through purchases of other companies. On Oct. 31, 2011, Miller Manufacturing’s sister company, Springer Magrath, relocated to the Glencoe facility from McCook, Neb., and became a division of Miller Manufacturing. “This added nearly 20 new jobs to our facility,” Lenz said. On Jan. 31, 2012, Miller Manufacturing acquired the Farm Store division of Double L Group, Ltd., in Dyersville, Iowa, “adding nearly 10 new jobs to our facility,” Lenz said. In September 2013, the company will add a plastic injection molding machine to the Glencoe facility bringing in nearly 10 new positions, Lenz said. On Feb. 15, construction of a 24,000square-foot warehouse, located on the south end of the building, was completed. It brought the total size of Glencoe’s facility to 310,000 square feet. In the spring of 2013, Lenz said plans are to add an additional 60,000-squarefoot warehouse space on the northwest side of the building bringing the total size of our facility to 370,000 square feet. In the future, Lenz said, an additional 40,000-square-foot warehouse space on the northwest side of the building will bring the total size of the facility to 410,000 square feet.

Transmission line provides reliability
Once new substation is completed, new transmission line will be ready to go on line.
By Rich Glennie Editor he Glencoe Light & Power Commission is finalizing a “punch list” of items with its new $5.5 million transmission line and substation project that will complete a long, and at times, drawn-out process. Dave Meyer, Glencoe Light Plant manager, said the process started long before he arrived, but the permitting process was begun in 2011 to get the transmission line built from Glencoe east to Diamond Avenue, where a new substation was constructed. In between are 75 metal power poles along with 13 larger poles with concrete bases at locations where the line crisscrosses Highway 212. The new transmission line, which goes from the Armstrong Avenue substation south to Highway 212, across Chandler Avenue on the north side of Highway 212 and then across the highway to the south side near Bump’s Restaurant. From there it runs parallel along Highway 212 east to where it recrosses the highway to the north side. It then follows Diamond Avenue north to the new substation. Meyer said the substation will be commissioned soon. The line and substation will be run through all its functions and then be certified. Eventually, the line will tie into a planned Xcel transmission line that comes west from Waconia. That Xcel line will service Plato residents. Meyer said Glencoe’s new transmission will allow customers to have a more reliable source of energy coming from the east. That supplements the feed of energy from the west. Mayer said it completes a “loop” that has long been needed for the Glencoe plant.

The Glencoe Light & Power Commission has been planning to replace its old, often unreliable, eastern transmission line into Glencoe, for many years before actually approving the go-ahead for the $5.5 million project last year. Most of the poles were installed
“Glencoe customers will have a real reliable electrical system,” Meyer said. Not only will it increase reliability, but Meyer said it also will keep electrical rates “as stable as we can.” Building a transmission line is a “good return on the investment,” Meyer said, and it helps offset some costs of energy in the future. But there is another issue that concerns Meyer, and that is the recent action by the McLeod County Board to raise tip fees at the Spruce Ridge Landfill near Biscay. The landfill supplies methane gas that powers generators that supply electricity to Glencoe customers. The fear is the tip fee increase will cut down the amount of garbage coming to the landfill, thus reducing the amount of

the methane gas-to-electricity project. Meyer said the situation is being monitored at the Legislature, and Glencoe along with Waste Management, owner of the Spruce Ridge Landfill, have received “excellent support” from state and city elected officials as well as the McLeod County Board. Meyer said the methane gas project is the ideal “renewable resource,” something that is required by utility companies. The Glencoe Light Plant, as well as other utilities are required to produce 25 percent of its energy from renewable resources by 2025. Meyer said Glencoe Light & Power already surpassed that with its methane gasto-electricity project.
methane produced in the future. Meyer said Spruce Ridge will continue to produce the necessary methane to run the generators, but that gas production could be affected down the road if less garbage is brought to the landfill. Another factor is the recent legislative effort to enforce an old state statute that requires all waste generated in the sevencounty metro area to be hauled to an incinerator at Elk River. The statute was passed in the 1970s, but has been dormant for many years. Since a healthy part of Spruce Ridge Landfill’s garbage comes from the west metro area, enforcing the state statute could have a major effect on the Biscay facility. It also could negatively impact

Ready for the Morningside extension?
Getting city, county and Twin Cities & Western Railroad on same page is the key
By Rich Glennie Editor ears in the planning, the extension of Morningside Avenue (County State Aid Highway 15) north from 11th Street to 16th Street, could begin construction in 2014 if all parties can come to an agreement. To date, that joint power agreement between the city and county has yet to be reached. And satifisfying the needs of Twin Cities & Western Railroad (TC&W) is vital as well. The project, the second phase of a two-phase Morningside bridge and road project begun in 2004, has been scaled back considerably to better meet the current transportation needs of the area. The first portion of the work from 11th Street south to County Road 33, including the new bridge, was built under the premise that development on the south side of Buffalo Creek was going to boom and traffic volumes would increase accordingly. It never happened when the local housing market went in the tank in 200607 and has yet to recover. The volumes of traffic projected in 2004 resulted in the south half of the project being called “overkill,” by John Rodeberg of Short Elliott Hendrickson (SEH), consultant working on the latest phase of the Morningside Avenue proj-

Although it is hard to imagine, current Morningside Avenue, looking north near Coborn’s, would cross the railroad tracks and align along the telephone poles. The new county road project, set to begin in ect. Instead of the wider highway like the section south of 11th Street, the extension north will be two lanes crossing the
2014, will become County State Aid Highway 15 and be a north-south arterial on the east side of Glencoe, connection County Road 15 to Highway 212 and County Road 33 to the south. As to the new rail crossings, Rodeberg said the tracks are at a higher grade than many of the properties along the east side of Morningside Avenue. Federal dollars will be used to help match the street and railroad grades. Another aim is to keep water from draining onto the lower residential properties. The street grade needs to come up quite a bit, Rodeberg said. The plans also would call for TC&W to move its rail sidetrack east of the new Morningside Avenue extension. It currently lies between Union and Morningside avenues. As to soils, drainage and impacts to Oscar Olson Park, Rodeberg said there is no formal storm water outlet in that northeast section of Glencoe, and the water table is high. Those issues need to be corrected as part of the project. ***** There are two separate projects, Rodeberg said of the Morningside work. The first is the railroad crossing, and the other is the street extension. It was estimated the county’s cost would be $2.3 million, the city’s share would be about $965,000 and the federal dollars would be $270,000 to $300,000, depending if Diamond Avenue is closed. The storm sewer costs would likely be a 50/50 split between the city and county, Rodeberg said. The joint powers agreement with the county would determine who pays what.

One of the features of the proposed Morningside Avenue extension project is a roundabout at the future intersection with 16th Street, east of the high school. The curve near the high school would be eliminated, and the roundabout would align Morningside Avenue with County Road 15. Morningside would become a county road.
railroad tracks and ending in a roundabout east of the high school. The new street will align with County Road 15 east of the high school, and 16th Street will be extended east to the roundabout. The curve east of the high school will be eliminated. The original cost estimate of about $2 million 10 years ago has now increased to $3.4 million to $3.7 million, according to Rodeberg. Inflation, the addition of the 16th Street extension, wetland mitigation, soil corrections due to poor soil conditions, a northeast storm sewer addition and modifications to the railroad tracks have all added to the cost, Rodeberg said. Under the original cost sharing, the county would pick up 71 percent of the cost and the city the other 29 percent. Rodeberg said that remains the goal. Federal dollars also have been secured to replace the railroad crossing. The current Union Avenue crossing will be closed and replaced by the Morningside Avenue crossing. The $270,000 in federal money would increase by another $30,000 if the Diamond Avenue crossing farther east of Glencoe is closed, too, Rodeberg said. That would be a county decision, he added. The reason for the Diamond Avenue closing would be to allow TC&W to eventually move its switching yard farther east of Glencoe. *****

Christ Lutheran project nearly complete, dedication set for April 14
After many years of planning the nearly $1.2 million expansion project at Christ Lutheran Church in Glencoe it is nearly complete. One of the main focuses of the project was to make the facility more accessible for all who visit. The main entrance was expanded and moved from Knight Ave. to the south side of the building off the parking lot. An elevator was added to make the facility better handicap accessible for all three levels of the church. Until now, one would have to use the outdoor ramp and move outside to get from one level to another. A conference room was added as well as an expanded narthex to accommodate fellowship for the congregation and worship overflow. Audiovisual equipment has been added and updated. Access to the downstairs fellowship hall has been enhanced and much needed storage added. A dedication celebration is planned for April 14, from 2-4 p.m. The afternoon will start with a short worship service with special music, tours and refreshments.

Although new homes are rare, local property owners still pulling permits
By Rich Glennie Editor f new single-home construction is any indication of the housing market and its recovery from the “Great Recession,” tough times are not over in the Glencoe area. In 2012, two building permits were pulled for new single-family homes and none were pulled for townhouses or twin homes, according to building permit statistics from the city of Glencoe. The valuation of the two new homes was $433,581. Since 2008, only 13 new homes have been built in Glencoe. A decade earlier the city averaged 25 to 30 new housing starts each year. Thankfully, the health of the local economy is not gauged on single-family housing starts alone. Total building permit valuation totaled nearly $6 million; down from $10 million in 2008, but well above the $1.8 million in 2011. Rather than building new homes, homeowners, businesses and public entities are pouring money into remodeling existing homes and buildings. Here are some other statistics gleaned from the 2012 building permit report by
I
the city: Residential permits • House additions, five permits valued at $182,725. • House remodels/basement finishing, 23 permits for $331,976. • Garages, three permits for $70,544. • Garage additions/remodels, one permit for $38,607. • Three-season porch/sunroom, one permit for $8,000. • Decks, 13 permits for $87,827. • Demolition permits, one for $6,000. • Sheds/accessory structures, one permit for $3,000. • Maintenance permits issued by OTC, 152 for $6,281. • Miscellaneous permits, six for $20,908. The city also issued 23 plumbing permits, 32 mechanical permits, one house moving permit and six permits for fences that had no valuation attached. The total valuation of the 270 residential permits was $1,189,449. A second category in the report was commercial and industrial permits. They included: • New buildings, three for $168,896. • Remodel/additions, 21 for $3,607,491. • Reroof, new windows, reside, 14 per-
mit for $457,333. • Mechanical permits, 18 for $229,070. • Plumbing permits, eight for $129,807. • Fire sprinklers, six for $17,297. • Miscellaneous, four for $50,050. The total commercial industrial permit valuation was $4,659,944. The third category is public and institutional permits and included: • One reroofing, new windows and residing permit valued at $83,830. Permits issued in 2012 totaled 345 for a valuation of $5,933,223. City Administrator Mark Larson said the bulk of the permit valuations were generated by three projects: the remodeling and addition at Christ Lutheran Church, remodeling at Miller Manufacturing and replacement of windows and doors at Lincoln Jr. High and the high school by the Glencoe-Silver Lake School District.

New showroom
Jim and Linda Fahey, right, owners of Fahey Sales Autioneers, opened their Glencoe facility earlier this year. An open showroom greets customers coming in the front door, above. In the process, the Faheys combined their various other sales facilities into one central location along 9th Street and near Highway 212 in east Glencoe. The former John Deere building, 32,000-square feet in size, was remodeled into the modern showroom which measures 12,000 square feet, with offices downstairs and upstairs. The back rooms of the former farm implement dealership are storage and sorting areas for auction items. The commercial items area arranged in lots for future auctions, which can combine bidders onsite with online bidders. Jim Fahey said these smaller auction items turn over about every two weeks, while the larger items can take a little longer to turn over.

New library activities room
Glencoe Public Librarian Jackee Fountain proudly showed off the library’s newest addition last October when the former Glencoe High School English room was transformed into an activities room. The room is on the second floor, far southeast corner of the public library in the Glencoe City Center. The room was christened by the Friends of the Library with an open house last October and has since been used by a variety of groups, including for youth reading programs. The room also contains the original wood floor, a small stage and original curved arched setting above the stage. The late Geraldine Tews’ trust made a generous donation to get the project funded. The library activity room will be used for teaching and learning through library programs and events, Fountain said, including the children’s summer reading program, teen activities, author talks and adultand children-centered events.

New look-gym floors
After cracks developed in the original blue rubberized flooring at the 1999 Panther Field House, the Glencoe-Silver Lake School District opted to overlay two of the three gym floors with a new wooden floor. The results were spectacular. The third gym, designated for the school’s gymnastics program, was not involved in the remodeling. The $120,000 project, which also addressed drainage issues around the field house’s foundation, was completed before the start of the new school year and has been used extensively ever since.

Newest shelter at Oak Leaf
After months of planning and a tight deadline to get the work done, the new Shelter No. 2 was opened at Oak Leaf Park just before the annual Glencoe Days celebration in late June. It was an instant hit with the public and was the site of several Glencoe Lions Music in the Park celebrations last summer. The work was paid for in part thanks to the late Donald Hatz estate, which donated over $500,000 to the city for parks and recreational programs. The shelter was named the Donald Hatz Pavillion by Glencoe City Council in September. There is a plaque on the building explaining Hatz’s role in getting the building constructed.
