Ditch Happenings August 17th - 21st

Posted on August 24, 2015 at 12:37 PM by Acacia Wytaske

For this week's blog, I'd like to highlight meetings and hearings that are fast approaching.

CD56 (Lincoln & Garden City Townships)
Important Date: Sept. 2nd

An informational meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 2nd, from 2:00pm - 3:00pm at the Lake Crystal Recreation Center, 621 W Nathan St, Lake Crystal, MN for all landowners within the CD56 Watershed. The meeting notices were mailed to landowners today, August 21st.   The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the findings of the grant funded inventory that was just completed. Landowner input towards the draft Multi-Purpose Drainage Management Plan developed through the inventory is encouraged.

CD28 (Lincoln Township)
Important Dates: Sept. 3rd & Sept. 8th

Landowners on CD28 (Lincoln Township) received the Redetermination of Benefits Reports this week by mail.  We have been busy scheduling individual landowner meetings with the viewers on September 3rd, 2015 at the Lake Crystal American Legion, 712 W Bolt St. in Lake Crystal. If you are a landowner on CD28 and have not scheduled an appointment, please contact me, Casey Wytaske, or Craig Austinson at your earliest convenience. Spots are filling up quickly.

On that same day, September 3rd, 2015 from 2:00pm - 3:00pm, there will be an informational meeting to discuss the project being done on CD28.  The meeting is taking place at the Lake Crystal American Legion, also.

On September 8th, the final hearing in the matter of the Redetermination of Benefits and Improvement of Blue Earth County Ditch No. 28 will take place at
9:30am in the 2nd floor Commissioners' Room at the Blue Earth County Historical Courthouse, 204 S 5th St, Mankato.  The hearing notice was mailed to the landowners, published in the Mankato Free Press, posted outside the Historical Courthouse entrance and published on our website.


CD28 & JD15 (Lincoln Township)
Important Date: Sept. 8th

On September 8th, the public hearing on the petition for removal of property from CD28 & JD15 (Lincoln Township) will be held at 10:15am immediately following the CD28 Final Improvement and Redetermination of Benefits Hearing in the Blue Earth County Commissioners' Room at the Blue Earth County Historical Courthouse, 204 S 5th St, Mankato.  The hearing notice was mailed to the landowners, posted outside the Historical Courthouse entrance and published on our website.

Unfortunatley, there are not any exciting pictures to attach with the meeting and hearing notices listed above, so this week, I'll leave you with this picture I took of my bike on the Red Jacket Bridge on Wednesday.
