Candidate’s daughter takes over bank
Bob Vogel is handing over the presidency of the family bank to his daughter as he prepares to run for office.
The former Scott County Board chairman is seeking the state House seat for his area with GOP endorsement.
His New Market Bank has promoted Anita Vogel-Drentlaw to president in his place.
Bob Vogel will still be chairman and credit analyst.
His daughter is the fourth generation of Vogels to lead the bank, which celebrates its 109th anniversary this week.
Vogel-Drentlaw has been executive vice president and chief financial officer. She joined the firm in 2002 after working as a CPA.
Tribe, city ink deal for water supply
Prior Lake has a new source for water for 25 years, in a deal with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community.
The tribe has expanded its own treatment facility out of concern for its own needs, as well. That includes an additional well drawing from the Jordan Aquifer.
The city, which has expressed concern at times about water supply, can purchase up to 700 gallons of water a minute without having to invest in the infrastructure itself.
The tribe said its expansion was “strategically located to minimize interference with other wells and maximize the aquifer’s protective cover, which helps prevent pollution of the aquifer.”
The tribe’s facility opened in 2007.
