MOTHER NATURE IS HIGH MAINTENANCE LADY

ICY ROADS MEAN BIG BUCKS
The rain/sleet/snow that came to the county last week end and left our roads covered with ice were dealt with in fine style by the Nicollet County Public Works employees. The sand/salt spread on the road was very helpful in keeping cars in the correct spots on top of the blacktop roads. The mixture was spread in a continuous manner this time rather than only on the curves. It was needed, but these safety measures come at a price. The board approved a bill of $15,981.27 on Tuesday for sanding salt. We hope Mother Nature will be kind and these costs can be contained. end
