Council (Continued from page 1) vote. Dissenting votes were cast by council members Mike Dorry, Mary Gustafson and Mel Reinke. In other business, the council approved a five year contract exten- sion with Waste Management of Central Minnesota, of which Northern Waste is a local subsidiary, for the city's garbage collection. Ortonville Mayor Dave Ellingson, who had suggested getting quotes from other companies at the council's last meeting, stated, "This may be the best deal but may not be, but at least we get the bottom line." Elliott responded in favor of the local company, "I've heard no com- plaints about (Northern Waste's) ser- vice. They've increased their contract amount in other communities but haven't with us so I suggest we do this." In a 6-1 decision with Ellingson casting the dissenting vote, the council approved the extension following dis- cussion with a Northern Waste repre- sentative. Also discussed at last Monday's meeting was the upcoming public hearing on the relocation of Strege Auto Parts near Pro Auto about 1/2 mile south of Ortonville. The council voted to send a letter to Big Stone County in support of the move, which will be discussed at a hearing during the County Planning and Zoning Commission meeting tonight, Tuesday, May 11 at 7 p.m. in the Clinton Memorial Building.

Maurice started his position at the "Big Stone Historical Society, through the Green Thumb Program on April 20, 1998. In his position at the museum he has provided many services for which the historical society would be hard pressed to get done without his help. Maurice maintains old tractors, farm equipment and other displays at the museum. This fits in perfectly with his farm background and mechanical ability. Maurice finds that at age 82 he is not only supplementing his family income, but is providing a beneficial service to his community. This spring he has been overhauling an F-12 Farmal as well as doing a lot of painting on equipment. He said: "I love the work and I love the people I work with - they are really nice and have treated me so good."
