News Tribune, June 4, 1973 Inland Steel Co. has announced it has filed an application with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for water permit hearings for a proposed 2.3 million annual ton taconite plant on the Iron Range. The plant would be located about 1.5 miles northeast of Virginia. Today is Olaf Bromberg Day in Carlton. The 76-year-old native of Sweden — a village of Carlton resident since 1961 — is being honored for numerous activities in the community, according to a proclamation by Mayor Norman Miller.
The Miller-Dwan Mayoral Task Force decided yesterday that the Duluth facility should remain city-owned and the public’s oversight of it should be strengthened. The six-member group has been meeting for months, investigating the hospital’s history, activities and relationship to the city. For the first time in more than five years, starting tomorrow Duluth drivers will have to plug meters on Saturdays or risk getting a $6 ticket. City officials say their goal is turnover of parking spaces and not revenue from tickets.
