Created: 08/12/2011 10:38 PM WDIO.com

In August 2011, Proctor community leaders gathered to honor those who've helped the city over the years, including a former U.S. Representative Jim Oberstar.

Congressman Oberstar spoke at the ceremony. City leaders are especially thankful for Oberstar's help obtaining federal funding for the Kirkus Street Project. It includes a bridge over the CN Railroad.

"It's enormously rewarding and wonderful to hear from people whose lives I've touched, whose communities I've helped to improve and feel that my service has been of such value they want me to come back and express their appreciation," Oberstar said.

Oberstar said the Kirkus Street Project will also allow new economic development in Proctor without affecting the railroad.
