MOORHEAD—After nearly 32-years as the Transportation Director in Moorhead Dan Bacon is retiring.

Dan started as a bus driver in 1978, but took on the position of Transportation Director in 1986.

In his time with the department Dan has improved the bus driver training program, lowered the costs of transportation and helped establish a working relationship with local law enforcement.

He also helped provide buses for evacuations during emergencies like the Flood of 2009, but his plans for retirement are a little less clear.

"I don't know yet. I'll let you know next week maybe. You know, I'm taking a month off and then I'll figure out what I want to be when I grow up," said Bacon.

Bacon's official last day is Thursday.
