CARVER, WRIGHT, McLEOD COUNTIES, MN Three area townships have updates this week:
Watertown Twp. recycling coupons valid until December
Watertown Township and the Douglas Kugler Eco Site at 676 Industrial Blvd. in Watertown will continue to accept $10 recycling coupons for redemption until December.
The coupons were originally sent to all Watertown Township households with the annual newsletter with an expiration date of June 2011.
“There are a limited number of coupons left,” Clerk Ann Bruner noted. “Please attend the Nov. 7 monthly meeting to obtain a coupon or call the office at (952) 955-2466 to set a time to pick up a coupon.”
In other business, reconstruction of the one mile of Swede Lake Road in Watertown Township was completed in September.
“This is the second road project completed since the residents of Watertown Township agreed to a levy increase which helps with the funds needed for renewal of gravel roads on an as-needed basis,” Bruner noted.
