Roberts takes reins of DL's public utilities
Though he's only been on board as the general manager of Detroit Lakes Public Utilities for about a month, Vernell Roberts is no stranger to the lakes area -- or to the utilities industry.

Roberts got his start in the industry as a contractor, working on the construction of transmission power lines.
