The Two Harbors City Council recognized a Two Harbors Police Department officer Monday for his work with the 2017 Law Enforcement Torch Run.

Officer Ken Anderson received a certificate of appreciation honoring his exceptional contributions in coordinating the 2017 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics in the community. The Torch Run, which was the first ever in Lake County this year, raised more than $11,000 locally to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Minnesota.

"On behalf of Mayor (Chris) Swanson, myself and the City Council, I would just like to say we are proud of your actions and thank you for taking this on," said city administrator Dan Walker during the council meeting Monday to Anderson. "You noticed a gap and you took on a special project and it is very commendable. We do appreciate that."
