HUMBOLDT — While he’s not running for mayor again, Rob Muench will still have his name on the ballot.
In the Monday, Nov. 9 election, Muench will be running again for one of six councillor seats.
There is still a lot of unfinished business that he still wants to be a part of, he said, like the lagoon upgrades that has just been recommended for federal funding through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program.
“I'd like to see it happen with no new tax increases or levies, and I think that's doable with the amount of debt we have and will pay off in the next few years. We can use that savings to fund that system. That's what's desperately needed in our community.”
Other ongoing projects include the flood mitigation study, asset management, and continued improvements for Highway 5, Highway 20 South, and 16th Street.
Muench was first elected to the council table in 2006 and won the mayor’s seat in 2016. His decision to not run for the mayor position was due to balancing work, home life, and council.
With all the hardships the city had to face, Muench said he would like to thank the city staff for all their hard work and accomplishments in the past four years.
