SARTELL -- Sartell mayor-elect Joe Perske will have the "mayor-elect" removed from his title tonight as he is sworn in a Sartell's new leader.

Perske, a six-year veteran of the city council says don't expect a big shake-up from his office in 2011.  He says the city has positioned itself well for future growth, but must continue the planning by improving the transportation infrastructure.

Perske takes over as mayor after Tim O'Driscoll stepped aside to run for the Minnesota House of Representatives...a seat which he captured in the 2010 fall election.
