The New England City Council welcomed a new member to their committee during the Oct. 6 meeting.

Accepting the vacant seat was Lisa Plaggemeyer.

Plaggemeyer was born and raised in New England and attended New England High School. She currently works as a teller along with handling some consumer loan duties with Dakota Western Credit Union. She has one son, 15 year old Dylan who attends New England High School.

Plaggemeyer said she is most excited to be a part of the council as the city begins to make major changes for the future, specifically the water project and changes effected by the energy industry.

“It’s a good time to be on the committee to help pave the road for what our future is going to be,” Plaggemeyer said. “[And] being able to be involved at the forefront of a lot of different upcoming events.”

Mayor Marty Opdahl is happy that Plaggemeyer accepted the role and is looking forward to what her experience can bring to the council.

“She works in the financial market, she’s had some vast experience with some companies that are probably more global than what we’re used to in New England, and I think that’s going to bring a lot of flavor, and she’s a lifelong New England resident,” Opdahl said. “So I think she has a lot of positive attributes.”

Plaggemeyer was very flattered and appreciative of the votes she received and wanted the community to know.

“Thanks for having the confidence, and putting me in this role, and I’m really looking forward to digging in and really paving a new way for us to move forward,” Plaggemeyer said.
