Ellsworth Township seeks fireproof fire cabinet
The Ellsworth Township board is hoping to purchase a new or used fireproof file cabinet for township documents, Clerk Gordy Seiffert noted. Anyone who knows of a four-drawer legal-sized cabinet for sale in the area is encouraged to call Seiffert at (320) 693-7896.
At its September meeting, the Ellsworth board discussed the sub-standard road grading in the township this year, which was partly due to dry weather, Seiffert noted.
Also, nearly five miles of township road has been blacktopped. Work on the shoulders will be completed soon. Until then, residents are advised to drive on those roads more cautiously because of steeper edge drops.
