Commissioners Select Candidates For Manager
The County Commissioners recognize that the condition of our roads and necessary improvements are very important to our citizens. Over the past two months they have published letters regarding this subject in the Prairie Times.
The first letter focused on the notable contrast in condition and funding of our roadways and those in our neighboring counties. The following month they discussed the actions we are taking to determine what our total county-wide requirements are. Those letters are provided here for your information.

In this month's edition of the Prairie Times, the Commissioners lay out their plans to prioritize and seek funding for our road needs over the coming years. This final letter will be posted here once published. County leadership plans to continue providing information on this and other topics important to our citizens.
