Administrator says, 'It's what's best for me and city'
The tally of Lake Elmo employees heading for the City Hall exits in recent weeks is now up to four.
The departures started a couple months ago with the resignations of receptionist Stacy Bodsberg and taxpayer relations manager-communications coordinator Alyssa MacLeod. Assistant city administrator and city clerk Adam Bell soon followed, when he turned in his resignation letter May 29.
Then Tuesday, June 9, the suburb's top employee, city administrator Dean Zuleger, joined the ranks of departing municipal staffers, following a separation agreement unanimously approved by the council.
