First Employees of City

(dated 2002)
perhaps Evelyn Kjos?

I am writing in behalf of the devoted group of employees that worked for the City of Burnsville.
The very first employee of the City was Edward Giles. He was first hired as a Township employee in 1957. At that time he plowed snow and graded the country roads during the summer. When the township incorporated into a Village in 1964 a Police department was created, a Bookkeeper was hired, as well as a Village Engineer, Building Inspectors, Sewer and Water Inspectors, more Street Maintenance help and some clerical help. By 1965 the village employed 29 people. In June of 1965 Patrick J. Mclnnis was hired as Burnsville’s City Administrator. He became the city’s first City Manager in 1967 when the city adopted the Plan B form of government.
In the current year of 2002 the city has 298 regular full-time and part-time employees.
I am attaching a list of employees who have retired from city employment throughout the years. The first employee to retire from city service was Fran Gaston who retired as the City’s Assessment Clerk in the year 1977.
At the present time, September 2002, a group of retirees meet monthly for the “City of Burnsville Retirees Monthly Breakfast. It is a close-knit group who enjoy the monthly meeting with a lot of reminiscing and family updating.
