WILLMAR -- Rick Fagerlie has filed for re-election to the Third Ward seat on the Willmar City Council in the Nov. 7 general election. He operates an appraisal and inspection service.

Fagerlie was originally elected to the Fourth Ward in 1992 and was re-elected in 1996. He served two years, then resigned because he moved to the Third Ward, and was elected to the Third Ward in 1996.

Fagerlie said he entered the council race in 1992 when he lived in southeast Willmar because of odor problems with the wastewater treatment plant. He said he's seeking re-election "because it kind of gets in your blood after you've been on a long period of time, but it is interesting.

"I enjoy most of it, and there's going to be some great things happening here in the next four years, new developments in Willmar,'' he said. "I want to make sure that new waste treatment plant gets going by 2010.''

The four-year terms of three other council members and Mayor Les Heitke will also expire at the end of the year.
