Damaged signs in Ellsworth Township to be replaced
Damaged road signs in Ellsworth Township will be paid for with the help of the government, Clerk Gordy Seiffert said.
“The government will be taking care of the majority of the cost,” he said.
The rebuilding of a portion of 640th Avenue in Ellsworth Township is behind schedule because of weather.
“The rains have set it way back,” Seiffert said.
Stockholm open house Dec. 5
Stockholm Township officials are considering the purchase or construction of a new town hall, and the Cokato Laestadian Lutheran Church building is one option, Clerk Diane Johnson said.
Residents are invited to an open house at the church building Saturday, Dec. 5 from 9 to 11 a.m. Refreshments will be served, and there will be an opportunity to discuss town hall options with township officials.
“They want the input from residents,” Johnson said.
The original quote for the church building was $400,000, Johnson said, but now the price has been lowered to $150,000 to $200,000.
Stockholm Township residents will be receiving a newsletter in the mail with a list of town hall options and an invitation to the open house.
French Lake recycling going well
Residents of French Lake Township are doing well with recycling, Clerk Rosanne Peterson said.
Typically, Wright County reimburses the township for about $400 of the recycling cost. The amount of reimbursement depends upon how much is recycled.
There is a drop-off site at the town hall, which makes recycling convenient, Peterson said. The cost for the township per quarter is about $1,000 for recycling.
