For over 10 years. Deb and Jerry Riewer have been the owners of City Center Espresso at 3 N. Main Street. Regular customers have grown used to seeing Deb at the drive-up window, ready to take their order. At one time, many years ago, customers were used to seeing another face at the coffee shop, and that time has come full circle.
Once an employee of the Riewers’, Lyndsie Denzer (nee Kasun) has now taken the reins as the new owner of City Center Espresso, but the carwash attached to it will remain in the Riewers’ hands. Denzer, a coffee lover herself, and a faithful customer before she took over, hopes to maintain the integrity of what has become a landmark for coffee fanatics. The only thing she’ll be changing at first is the name. Customers can now enjoy the same great coffee of Conrad’s City Center Espresso at the new Java Hut.
On a recommendation from Chief Gary Dent and the police commission, the city council, on a 4-0 vote, moved to hire Chad R. Strong as Police Patrolman I on Tuesday.
Strong has out-of-state certified post credentials which are being reviewed to verify if they will transfer to Montana.
If his credentials can be transferred, he would only be required to attend one week of the 12 weeks of training required by Montana, which would be a significant savings to the city.
