Superior's City Council has approved funding for three additional firefighters in 2019. The entry-level positions would start no sooner than April 1. The positions, as well as an increase in the Superior Fire Department's overtime budget, would be funded with $67,000 from the general fund contingency and approximately $130,000 in oil pipeline terminal tax. "There are some things we have on the table here that still need to be sorted out," Mayor Jim Paine said during the meeting Tuesday, Nov. 20. Long-term funding for the positions is one example, he said.

This year, the toys will be distributed from the Salvation Army building at 916 Hughitt Ave. "It's an exciting time for us and the city as a whole to have this building being built; however, it didn't coincide well with the Toys for Tots distribution," said motor pump operator John Lundberg, who coordinates the annual event. Distribution date is fast approaching. Toys will be given out to families in need Dec. 14-15.

"The expansion to Superior was decided because of the prime location and two of the three owners went to college at the University of Minnesota Duluth and are very familiar with the old 'Chicken Spur,'" Andrews said.
