Council Member Russ Susag
Council Member Russ Susag
Susag, a former member of the Richfield City Council, was appointed to the Met Council by Gov.
In announcing his resignation at the Council's March 12 meeting, Susag told his colleagues he once opposed the Met Council's direction and called for its elimination.
A civil engineer with a Ph.D. in sanitary engineering, Susag worked as a manager for the system in its early years and later served on the Metropolitan Waste Control Commission before its merger with the Met Council in 1994.
While on the Council, Susag chaired a task force that developed a plan to reduce the amount of clear water entering the wastewater system through inflow and infiltration (I/I). Excessive I/I consumes system capacity needed to serve future growth. During major storms, it also can cause sewer backups, resulting in threats to human health and the environment.
Susag has deep roots in his community. In addition to serving on the Richfield City Council for eight years, he has served as president of the Richfield Tourism Board and as vice-chair of the Richfield Planning Commission.
The governor is expected to establish a nominating committee to screen candidates for the Council seat vacated by Susag.
