Business of the Week: March 22, 2019 – John Breunig

Business of the Week:  Jordan Deputy Registrar – John Breunig

Everyone says they have the best employees but everyone else might just be wrong.  Since 1978 we have had the one of the best employees you could ask for.  You will have a hard time arguing with us that we don’t just have the best.

John Breunig is retiring and today is his last day.  He has been the fabric of our customer service at our DMV for so many years and we have all been very spoiled.  John’s infectious attitude of helping other has molded our staff to try to do the same.  He helps and cares for people which makes the rest of our staff want to help each other and care for one another.  Our Deputy Registrar office is known throughout the area to have some of the best customer service in a very challenging customer service business.  John is one of the main reasons for this. He has taught every staff member at the City the meaning of helping people with a smile, sometimes a joke and enjoying your job.   John is truly one of the nicest people you will meet and he makes our community that much better by him doing his thing.  At his job, around town and just the way he lives his life, he makes our community better.

So many people come in our office each day and ask for John already.  Its always, “Is John here?”  We have bets that might happen for many years after he retires.  Each time it does happen from now on, we will have a tear in the corner of our eyes but still get a fond memory of working with our friend & co-worker, John Breunig.  Not that you are gone from our lives, just our work lives.  You will need to come visit us.  Maybe at 5:00pm every day for Jeopardy.

Our community is going to miss John as our Deputy Registrar.  We as a city are going to miss him very much every day.  If you see him around town wish him well in his retirement.  He deserves all the best for the job he has done for us all for so many years.  We hope you have a long and happy retirement.  You earned big guy.  Thank you, John!

“Well done, good and faithful servant!” – Matthew 25:23

 

Now some about the Jordan Deputy Registrar Office at City Hall.  We are sure John doesn’t want this all be about him:  Here are our hours and what services we can provide for you.  Please buy your tabs & licenses from us and a part of the fees does stay with the City.  This helps us and potentially could help keep your taxes down.  Plus we are convenient and provide extremely friendly services.

City of Jordan Receives SolSmart Bronze Designation

The City of Jordan is pleased to announce it has earned the Bronze designation from SolSmart, a national program that recognizes cities that foster solar energy usage and remove obstacles to solar development at the local level. The City made changes to permitting, inspection, planning and zoning processes that will help solar companies reduce the cost of installations and pass those savings on to consumers.

The City currently receives 120% of electricity used for City purposes from community solar gardens, and understands the importance of lowering barriers to solar development. By receiving the Bronze SolSmart designation, Jordan is streamlining requirements and taking steps to encourage solar development. SolSmart is an initiative led by The Solar Foundation and the International City/County Management Association and funded by the US Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office.

For information on solar development in Jordan, please visit the City Website: http://jordanmn.gov/city-departments/planning-and-zoning-department/permits-applications-forms/solar-panels/ or contact Planning Intern, Lauren Walburg, at 952-492-7928.

Business of the Week September 28, 2018

Business of the Week:  LCL Essential Oil Products
Essential oils used to make all natural products for your home, your children and for you! Soy candles, wax melts, lotion, eye cream, bath bombs and more!

 

All natural products for your home, your children and for you!

 I started using essential oils in 2015 for my family and I. Once I learned about how to use them I started making my own natural products for my family. I have two girls and wanted to be as natural as I could on what I would use for them! I started with slaves and lotions and it just kept going from there! I also dabbled in making my own soy candles and realizing how toxic a paraffin candle can be, I decided to start educating my friends and family about how we need to use more natural products. I would give them samples of different things to try and hearing how well my facial moisturizer or salves would work they encouraged me to start going to craft shows to sell!

So hear I am today… Working a full time job, 2 kids, a husband and a handful of barn animals, I still find time to create all of my “concoctions” as my husband calls them. I love seeing how they actually work for people and help with the situation they may have or burning that all natural non toxic soy candle in their home!

Some products also available at Radermacher’s in Jordan!

 

MnDOT – 169 Resurfacing Project

MnDOT will be resurfacing US 169 from Jordan to just north of Belle Plaine, and from just south of Belle Plaine to Highway 19. MnDOT’s project website is http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/hwy169belleplaineandjordan/. MnDOT’s contractor plans to start as soon as April 30th, depending on weather conditions.  Between Belle Plaine and Jordan, work will begin in early May on the southbound lanes. All traffic will be confined to the northbound lanes. In late June or in July, MnDOT will flip traffic from the northbound to southbound side. All US 169 traffic will be confined to two lanes (single lane each direction) until August 18th.

The project involves resurfacing of the 169 pavement and some access changes to driveways and intersecting roadways. Most significantly, the project involves construction of a ‘reduced conflict intersection’ design at Delaware Ave and US 169. More information on this type of layout is available at http://www.dot.state.mn.us/roadwork/rci/.

Questions regarding the project can be directed to: Kirsten Klein at kirsten.klein@state.mn.us.
