Ellsworth plans for spring election
At the Dec. 17 Ellsworth Township meeting, the board decided to schedule an alternate township office election day in case of bad weather on election day this spring, Clerk Gordy Seiffert said.

Also, the 640th Avenue rebuild portion is completed for the winter, he added. Any needed touch-ups will be done in the spring.

Dassel might dust-coat all roads
It’s possible that Dassel Township might dust coat all its roads next year, Clerk Karin Colberg said. The board discussed the possibility at the Dec. 8 township meeting.
“We’re going to investigate the cost,” Colberg said. The township might do the dust-coating as an alternative to black topping next year, which could be more cost-effective, she explained.
So far, nothing has been decided, and the township is still exploring its options.
Also, there will be no regular township meeting in January. The next township meeting will be Tuesday, Feb. 9.
