Ada, MN — The Norman County Board of Commissioners had their 2nd regular monthly meeting last week. At the meeting they brought up concerns about “blowdirt” in the ditches around the county as a result of a windy and dry spring. Norman County Board Chair LeeAnn Hall says the commission approved allowing landowners to recover that dirt as long as they get a permit.

Also at the meeting, Norman County Environmental Services Director Garry Johanson presented on the fee additions for Renewable Energy projects. Hall says the fees mostly only apply to large-scale renewable energy projects.

Norman County didn’t receive any qualified applicants for their Assistant Highway Maintenance Foreman position. However, Hall says they have employees in-house that can step-up to fill that role as needed.

The Board of Commissioners also had some discussions regarding future staffing in the Auditor/Treasurers Office.

The board also thanked Payton Rasmussen for his work redoing a sign at the Norman County cemetery as part of an Eagle Scout Project.
