Interior of the new town hall

The new Burnsville town hall had its first election Tuesday. Shown casting her ballot is Mrs. Henry Vollrather, Loop Road, Orchard Gardens. Bartley McAndrews and Patrick J. Connelly are the election clerks at the table. Charley Fischer, right standing, is the election judge receiving the ballots. Edward Doebel standing, Wallace Day, seated. Photo by Shirley Ryberg.

Also - A Good Irishman. During his 26 years as its village clerk, Pat Connelly has watched Burnsville grown from 500 persons (most of whom he knew by name) to move than 8000. The paperwork and detail of the Dakota County community have become "too much to handle" along with his 220 acre farm, says Connelly. He will retire from office on April 1 and will be succeeded by Mike O'Connor, a newcomer to Burnsville last summer. "But he's a good Irishman, and that's what counts," Connelly said. The Burnsville Village Council this week honored Connelly for his long service.
