After more than 21 years on the job

After more than 21 years on the job, Dan Burns retired from his position as the lead water and wastewater operator for the Village of Cadott June 7.

“It’s time for me to back away,” said Burns.

While the operator’s position was the first he held with the village, Burns says he started his career in the dairy industry in a lab. When he saw an ad for the operator’s position, the lab work piqued his interest, so he decided to apply.

In the time since Burns started, a lot has changed.

“Probably the biggest thing, is we built the new waste treatment plant,” said Burns, adding that the old facility was giving out.
