Splettstoeszers of Mayer to be featured in Monday’s paper

MAYER, MN – With a population of 1,749 at the 2010 census, Mayer is by no means a metropolis – but Loren and Barb Splettstoeszer remember a time when the town was a quarter of the size.

“For a long time, the population on the road sign was 373,” Loren said. “Now, there are developments on every corner of town.”

Look for a story about Loren and Barb Splettstoeszer in the Monday, Nov. 3 edition of the Herald Journal.

Mayer City Council schedules special meeting regarding roundabout

MAYER, MN – Mayer City Administrator Luayn Ruch-Hammond told the city council during its Oct. 27 meeting that the city received correspondence from Joel Landskroener, executive director of Mayer Lutheran High School (MLHS) indicating the board of directors has been discussing the proposed Highway 25 roundabout, and the project may now be out of the school’s price range.

The city started planning for the project at the school’s request, and the cost is to be shared between the city, the school, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The city has already spent a significant amount of money on engineering for the project and sending the project out for bids.
