After 47 years in public service, Maplewood City Manager Jim Antonen is ready for a break. Earlier this year, a notable birthday prompted him to make the decision to retire.
“I turned 65 earlier this year, which is retirement age. That’s really the reason -- it’s time,” Antonen said. “I’ll be wintering in California, where I have a home, and summering in Minnesota. I have a townhome here and a home there in California.”
