Though his retirement doesn't become official until Aug. 1 -- his last day on the job is July 29th -- Detroit Lakes City Finance Officer Lou Guzek admits that he's already had a few doubts since turning in his resignation letter a week ago.


"I think I made the right decision -- I've thought about it for quite a while now -- but I just saw that the ad's already in the paper for my replacement, and it started to really sink in," Guzek said Tuesday. "August 1st will be here soon."
