At the beginning of every year the City designates an official newspaper in which we post our public notices. Items such as Public Hearings, Requests for Proposals, etc. must be posted in an official newspaper according to state law. The City of West St. Paul designated the South-West Review as our official newspaper for 2019.
Unfortunately, Lillie Suburban Newspapers (the owner of the SWR) has ceased operations. Effective immediately, we will be posting our notices in the Pioneer Press for the remainder of 2019. Staff will bring this to the City Council for official re-designation at the next City Council meeting.
We'd like to thank Lillie Suburban for covering community stories and providing great local journalism to St. Paul suburbs for over 80 years. Many great West St. Paul stories have been published by Lillie newspapers over the years. We wish all the employees the best and hope to see them in other roles around the community very soon.
