Commissioners reported on meetings they attended.

 

Administrator's Update:

Rep. Kelly will be at November 15 meeting; Congressman Walz or staffer not attending.

Met with Lake City – already sharing equipment with Wabasha, no room for county in existing buildings. Potential to add on to building or do free-standing building. Need to determine size needs, get estimate and work out agreement on land-use by county if that is the way to go. Potential to save on paving bids when in close proximity. Study further.

Local Government Redesign, November 7, U of M Rochester Campus, 111 S. Broadway, 5:00-8:30 p.m.

Boiler – started work today
