It's a smelly job, and the pay stinks too. But, it took two tries to elect a new sanitary district comissioner in Burlington, Wisconsin. There were two candidates vying for the job and Tuesday's vote ended in a tie. So, city officials put both names in a hat and held a drawing at Town Hall yesterday. The incumbent, Denise Rintz, emerged as the victor for another six-year term. Sanitary District commissioners are paid an annual salary of $2,700 to oversee the operation of the sewer system.
