Phil routinely acts on behalf of cities as a liaison with the public, residents, and other interested parties. He says, "I enjoy the relationships that are developed and the satisfaction I get from helping a client solve their issues." Phil began his career in 1992, and as the Baxter Civil Work Group Leader has managed the planning and design of various civil engineering projects in the Baxter area. He has been involved with State and Federal Aid projects, transportation corridor studies, trail studies, capital improvement planning, and has extensive experience as a municipal engineer with several north central Minnesota communities.

When Phil isn't busy with the many activities his children are involved in, he enjoys a variety of outdoor activities himself.
