City administrator resigns for second time
By Lynda Jensen
Howard Lake City Administrator Doug Borglund gave notice of his resignation, effective Feb. 1.
Borglund accepted a position as city planner for Forest Lake, which is located closer to his residence in the Twin Cities, he said.
The city planning job will provide a new challenge for him, and is located near to his wife's job as the manager of a community medical clinic in St. Paul, he said.
The change will greatly cut down his commute time, which is 600 miles per week. It also fits in better with goals for his family, he said.
Borglund leaves Howard Lake under a zenith of development.
Managing explosive growth, Borglund cultivated projects associated with more than a dozen new developments in both commercial and residential sectors over the past several years.
Among larger projects associated with him are the Security State Bank and medical clinic expansion, Stellar Health Care Center, the new industrial park, the start of a comprehensive land use plan, and Dutch Lake Woods, among many others.
"It's a good base for what's to come," he said.
Borglund left the Howard Lake position once before in April of 1998, after filling the administrator position for two years at Howard Lake.
He returned in October of 1999 as administrator until the present time.
