Joining the Excelsior Fire District as a firefighter recruit is a way to help save lives and serve the community. The district is looking to increase their numbers from the 39 current responders to the 50 total allotted in the budget.

The Opus Group, partnered with Ebenezer Management Services, has begun construction on a senior living facility in Minnetonka that will accept its first residents during the spring of 2019.
