Blesener spearheaded facility, but died before its completion
Some 100 people packed into a corner of Little Canada’s newly finished public works building on June 22 for its grand opening and dedication to the city’s former mayor, the late Bill Blesener.
The cavernous yet bright new building at 2858 Centerville Road was packed with heavy vehicles and heavy hearts for Blesener, who championed the completion of the 25,000 square foot building.
Blesener died from cancer on Dec. 21, 2014 at age 74, days away from completing his 10th term as mayor.

Owners aim to make more electricity than they take
A cloudy day greeted the groundbreaking of Mark and Kathryn Hansons' new Roseville home on Tuesday, June 16, and it's no stretch of the imagination that the two are hoping for sunnier days ahead.
The Hansons' house will be powered and heated by sunshine, so much so that Mark said the home should be "net-zero," generating more electricity via solar panels than it uses.
The Hansons are putting a twist on the typical net-zero story as well, with plans to charge their electric cars exclusively using the home's electricity.
