Lester Prairie Mayor

Andy Heimerl has filed for the office of mayor in Lester Prairie.

Andy Heimerl

Why are you running for office?

Over the last few years that I have been on the city council and in the mayor’s seat, there have been many accomplishments that we have made, but many more need to be achieved.

I enjoy my time dealing with the citizens of Lester Prairie and working together towards a common goal.

I have many things that I would like to see for the city and many of those have not even been touched upon yet.

What do you think are two major issues at this time, and what do you propose to do about them?

A water treatment facility is a top priority, as well as getting a plan in place to fix deteriorating roads and infrastructure throughout the city.

The water treatment project is something that has already been looked into and, hopefully, action is taken on that issue soon. This project will help to eliminate discoloring in our city’s water supply and help make all of our water softeners run more efficiently, saving all of us money in many different ways.

The roads are another issue that we have touched on over the last couple of years, but is not yet close to being something that is resolved.

It is a big dollar project, and one that is sure to be a hot topic in the near future.

We have had discussions with the county in regards to turnback projects. For this to proceed, the city has to have our plans in place to accommodate these plans.

Why should you be elected?

As I stated above, there are many projects that need to be accomplished. I have knowledge of the issues that the city is currently facing and am prepared to handle them the best we can.

I have been a lifelong resident of Lester Prairie and have an interest in making our city a desirable place to live.
