Pelican Rapids new city administrator Lance Roisum will be standing tall—as always—for a special “Meet and Greet” event Feb. 6. 

At about 6 foot-8 inches, Roisum is unofficially credited as the “tallest administrator in Otter Tail County”—maybe the entire state. Roisum is pictured above, far right, with the Pelican city council in the background.

 The “Meet and Greet” event is Feb. 6, from 3-5 p.m., at city hall. 

Roisum officially took over the position at the first of the year, replacing 18-year administrator Don Solga, who announced his retirement last year. 

Lance Roisum previously served as the Health and Safety Facilitator for Lakes Country Service Cooperative where he had been employed for three years. 

Prior to this, he served as a Highway Maintenance Worker for Otter Tail County, for one year, and as an Operations and Maintenance Worker for the City of Pelican Rapids, Minnesota, for 14 years. 

 Roisum holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Mayville State University.
