EMP2 and EMP3 Meetings








Yesterday we were in McPherson to participate in the monthly EMP2 and EMP3 meetings. It is always good to see everyone and catch up on what’s happening with our members. City Administrator Chris Rhea was in attendance representing Mankato, one of our newest EMP2 members.

Courtney Flower, who was recently appointed as the City Administrator in Stockton, was in attendance as well. EMP3 congratulated Taggart Wall, City Administrator in Sterling, for his new position as the City Manager of Winfield as City Manager. Taggart will remain in Sterling until May. Great Day Great Meetings.
