Winsted Twp. opens bids for reconstruction of Acorn Ave.
At the June 11 meeting, Winsted Township opened bids for the reconstruction of Acorn Avenue, which is in the northeast corner of the township, Clerk Susan Goebel said. The bids are due July 6.
Winsted Township plans to apply about 6,000 yards of gravel to roads this year.
The township had a weed inspection June 17, Goebel added.
Camden appoints deputy clerk
Alysia Vinkemeier was appointed as Camden Township’s deputy clerk at the June 11 meeting, Clerk Roger Sauerbrey said.
The township also poured a concrete floor for its cold storage shed south of New Germany on County Rd. 33.
At the meeting, Carver County Watershed Administrator Paul Moline spoke about the 2030 comprehensive plan for the county. The parks section of the plan was taken out and will be dealt with as a separate issue, Sauerbrey said.
“There was a lot of controversy on that,” he said.
A change was also made regarding feed lots. Transition lots, which are areas of land that have potential for annexation into the city, are now permitted to have up to 30 animals.
“That number would allow for horses, but is not enough for a hog operation or a beef farm,” Sauerbrey said.
