Ditch Happenings Sept. 21st - 25th

Posted on September 25, 2015 at 4:08 PM by Acacia Wytaske

For this week's blog, I'm keeping it short and sweet with a recap of the last Board of Commissioner's Meeting.

Craig Austinson, Ditch Manager, and I had four items on the agenda on September 22, 2015; 
    1. The Hearing for the Final Improvement and the Redetermination of Benefits of CD78 (Vernon Center & Garden City Townships) was set for November 3rd, 2015 at 9:30am.
    2. A petition for repairs to CD56 (Garden City & Lincoln Townships) from Dean Meixell, Gordon Kuznia, Mike Sandt and Robert Sandt was presented to the board. The board appointed Chuck Brandel of ISG to prepare a repair report in accordance with MN Statute 103E.715.
    3. An inspector's report was approved for the repair of a blowout on CD25 (Mankato Township).
    4. An inspector's report was approved for the repair of 2 blowouts and broken tile on branch 1 of CD36 (Butternut Valley Township).

Do you have something you're curious to learn regarding the process of managing county ditches? Please let me know! I'd love to create some blog entries based on your interests.
