Rushford pecking at proposed chicken ordinance By K irsten Zoellner kzoellner@fillmorecountyjournal.com

The city council has taken a proposed chicken ordinance draft, put forth by the Planning Commission, under review. The draft is exceptionally thorough and should be straightforward to maintain, as well as making it easy for the city to pull the licensure of homeowners who fail to follow the provisions. The keeping of chickens in urban settings has been a growing trend.

Senator Jeremy Miller visits Harmony during legislative break By Jade Sexton jsexton@fillmorecountyjournal.com

Minnesota State Senator Jeremy Miller took the chance to visit several places in southeast Minnesota during the legislation’s spring break. It was an opportunity for him to meet with residents and business owners, answer questions, and share discussions. Monday, April 9 he visited On the Crunchy Side in Harmony for an informal discussion with interested residents. Miller represents District 31 as a Republican, but is quick to point out that he is an independent thinker, and he feels that is very important. “I’m here to listen and represent people, not a political party,” shared Miller. He added that he looks at each topic individually, and that he reads and responds to all of his emails. Miller is up for re-election in November. He explained that the State Senate is usually a four-year term, but every ten

years when the census is done, the district lines are redone, and the term is for two years. Cindy Ofstedal, who owns the Asahi Loft and Asahi Antiques in Harmony, asked him what has most disillusioned him in his position. “The biggest frustration I have is the political divide,” answered Miller. “It’s the worst it’s ever been in Minnesota, and it’s even worse in Washington.” Miller went over some of the positive things that he has been a part of in helping Minnesota while he has been in the senate. Legislature passed for the Veteran’s Cemetery that will be located outside of Preston. “We have done everything we can at the state level,” said Miller. The topic will be going to the federal government for grant money, and Miller said they hope to have it completed next year. Another new thing passed this last year was making “bath salts” or “plant food” illegal. Miller See MILLER Page 7 

applicant will only need approval from the owner or manager. Housing and sanitary care for the chickens is the most documented area of the draft ordinance, stating that coops must provide a minimum of four square feet of space per bird, include one window per 10 square feet of floor space, and provide adequate ventilation to maintain coop temperature. Specifications for roosts and nest boxes are also documented. Exercise runs or yards must provide a minimum of 10 square feet per bird. Food must be kept contained in rodent-proof receptacles and regular sanitary maintenance done frequently. Applicants will need to obtain a permit/license from the city annually. It is undecided at this point what the cost of the license will be, but Sarvi indicated that because of the start-up costs

involved with backyard chickens, it would likely be inexpensive. A public hearing regarding the topic will be held at the first council meeting in May, Monday, the 14, at 6:30pm, at city hall. The public is encouraged to attend. In other news, another group of eager, sustainably-minded citizens have been granted approval by the council to construct a Community Garden at Creekside Park. The group, led by David Hinz and sponsored by the Rushford Lutheran Church, have been allocated a 75 foot by 150 foot section at the park. The completely organic garden will be constructed entirely by the volunteer group, including fencing. The only cost to the city will be a water access near the garden. The group intends to donate the garden’s bounty to residents in the area, as well as the local food shelf.

YoU’d WaNt it:

Refi, short for “refinance,” is a process that may lead homeowners to lower monthly payments. Think of it as trading in your current mortgage for a newer model. The reasons to do it are many, but a low interest rate is a common one.

It may be time for a refinance if you suspect your monthly payments could be much lower due to today’s low interest rates. You may also want to consider a refinance if you have other debt you’d like to consolidate or you want to fund home improvements.

The Express Refi might be perfect for you if a) your mortgage balance is $125,000 or less, and b) you’ve been reluctant to go through a refinance because you heard it’s a hassle. If that describes you, the Express Refi was designed to be simple, fast, and easy. The fact that it has no fees* involved? That’s the icing on the cake.

C ommentary Time to nix oil subsidies

By Karen Reisner After nearly 100 years of subsidies, the highly profitable oil industry apparently is still a fledgling business and can’t make it without taxpayer dollars! Since 1913, the oil industry has enjoyed a variety of tax benefits or subsidies. Just how long does it take to establish a mature, Karen Reisner healthy business and what criteria is used to determine this? Obviously, the big five oil companies are wildly successful; so, why does the federal government still give them billions of dollars in tax breaks? The federal government provides numerous subsidies and tax breaks for many corporations and large businesses under the guise of creating jobs or promoting growth or the provision of a level playing field with foreign competition. Federal ethanol subsidies on corn-based ethanol were were allowed to expire at the end of 2011. During 2011 there was a nearly $6 billion subsidy, or a 46 cents per gallon tax credit. The subsidy for ethanol was established in 1979 to help make a renewable energy business in its infancy successful. There still is a production tax credit for cellulosic ethanol or ethanol made from corn stalks or cobs or switch grass. Ten percent of the gasoline blend we use in our vehicles is ethanol. The corn based ethanol business has not been without considerable controversy. That and the need to cut back on expenses allowed the subsidy to sunset. One intent of subsidies for Editorial Cartoon

businesses is to help them get established. My question is how a subsidy for the highly profitable oil industry can be justified. On March 29, the U.S. Senate voted 51 to 47 to end the billions of American tax dollars going to the five largest oil companies including BP, Exxon Mobile, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron, and Conoco Phillips. The bill died nine votes short of the 60 needed to end a Republican filibuster. These five companies had total profits of nearly $140 billion in 2011. Those that protect the subsidy would argue that government aid helps in the exploration and development of new sources of oil or gas. Some claim removal of the subsidies would cause increases in gasoline prices. It was mostly a Republican party line vote that caused the legislation to fail. Four Democrats joined the GOP and two Republicans broke ranks and voted to end the subsidies. About half of the savings would have gone for clean energy incentives to encourage more renewables and the other half toward reducing the deficit. Admittedly, the billions going to reduce the deficit would have been a mere drop in the bucket of a projected $7 trillion federal budget deficit over 10 years. However, a few billions here and more billions there, eventually will add up to “real money.” The continuation of oil subsidies is simply indefensible. Companies have sufficient market incentives with the price of crude oil to continue exploration and production. The end of the subsidy give away would not likely have any noticeable effect on gasoline prices at the pump. Frankly, the oil subsidies are

a direct reflection of generous gifts to political campaigns. According to data from the Center for Responsible Politics, the oil and gas industry has contributed $238.7 million to candidates and parties between 1990 and 2010 of which 75 percent has gone to Republicans. A pretty good investment for oil and gas companies considering the tens of billions they have gained in return. Politicians are choosing to protect big oil over the American people. They are addicted to the money big oil puts into their campaign coffers and shamelessly continue to facilitate the unnecessary give away. Oil subsidies, along with other business tax breaks, have a negative impact on the integrity of our political system. Subsidies interfere with a free market system. Oil companies are perhaps the most notable of the big businesses that feed off the federal government. They and numerous other corporations need to have the government “apron strings” cut. There needs to be a fair review of all business subsidies uncolored by politics. Some of the oil companies are doing important research; example, Exxon Mobile is researching biofuel production from photosynthetic algae. That said, these are mature companies with adequate funds for exploration and research and development. Congress should have cut this unnecessary “spending” to the oil companies long ago. Both the ethanol industry and the oil industry are profitable and no longer need tax credits. It is a rip off of the American tax payer to subsidize businesses with record profits, especially during this time of record deficits.

Preston’s National Trout Center included in MN 2012 Senate Bonding Bill

Senator Jeremy Miller recently informed National Trout Center (NTC) representatives that the current Minnesota Senate Bonding Bill includes a $1 million item for the center’s permanent home located in Preston, “Minnesota’s Trout Capital.” National Trout Center Board Chair, Dr. George Spangler – U of MN Professor Emeritus, Dept. Fisheries, Wildlife, & Conservation Biology, presented Preston’s National Trout Center funding request of $3.5 million before the MN Senate Capital Investment Committee on March 14, 2012. Requested funds would be used for pre-design, land acquisition and site preparation, and construction of a 10,000 square-foot building sited along the South Branch of the Root River. The National Trout Center is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to conserve our natural and cultural heritage of trout and the cold-water stream resources of the four-state region, known as the “Driftless Area” (unglaciated region), which includes the SE corner of Minnesota. This project is an economic engine for SE Minnesota, as well as for the entire state. The National Trout Center will have “national” impact as fishing is a popular sport nationwide among men, women, and families. Analysis of the Driftless Area trout fishery revealed more than $1.1 Billion in annual trout fishing-related economic activity in the four-state region. The annual value of recreational fishing in this area equals approximately 1/3 of Wisconsin’s dairy industry, about 1/3 of Minnesota receipts from corn and dairy products, and exceeds the combined revenues of all five of Chicago’s professional sports teams, $848 million. The NTC self-sustaining build-

County updates personnel policy Habitat for Humanity is hosting informal By Karen Reisner Kristina Kohn, Human Resources, reviewed recommended updates to county policies for its employees at the board’s April 10 meeting. Kohn suggested the policy concerning distracted driving was more of a guidance policy and in accordance with Minnesota law. The policy discourages the use of handheld cell phones while driving and encourages the use of a hands free device. The development of the distracted driving policy was recommended by the county’s insurance carrier, Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust (MCIT). Employees are also encouraged to refrain from other distracting activities including, but not limited to, reading documents or a map, grooming one’s self, and eating while driving a county owned vehicle. Employees are not to drive county vehicles if too tired, under medication that may impair driving, or are suffering from an injury or illness that could impair driving. Employees are required to report this information to their Department Head and request an alternate driver. The policy had been approved by department heads and was approved by the board with one language change, which says “employees are encouraged to refrain” from alternative activities while operating a county owned vehicle, instead of “employees are to refrain.” These alternative activities comprise activities that are not illegal, but that can cause a distraction while driving. A mileage reimbursement and travel policy was also approved. The policy attempts to “provide for uniform and consistent treatment of all employees.” Commissioner Duane Bakke voted against. Sheriff Office Maintenance Mechanic Since the recent resignation to retire of Rollie Olson, Maintenance Mechanic-Sheriff Department, was accepted, there has been some discussion of how best to fill his shoes when he leaves. Kristina Kohn offered a proposal to hire a mechanic, half time for Highway and half time for Sheriff. Olson also provides maintenance for the Sheriff Department. Kohn proposed a half time custodian be hired to replace that part of Olson’s duties and to work under Terry Schultz, Building Maintenance Supervisor. The proposed staffing changes would cost the county about $7,000 more than they are currently paying Olson. Brent Kohn, Highway Maintenance Superintendent, acknowledged they have fallen behind, putting winter maintenance work off since they lost the aid of a “floater.” Kristina Kohn said the mechanic working for both departments could be kept busy all of the time, servicing all of the county’s vehicles “in house.” She said both the number of vehicles to be serviced and the size of the jail building has increased.

Kristina Kohn said the program would be evaluated after a year to see how it is working. The board approved the parttime temporary hire of a person to cover the maintenance duties. Mechanic duties will be “farmed out” for now, giving the board time to consider the options. Other Business In Brief •Sarah Monroe, Victim Services, said the teal ribbons have been hung in the county’s cities to remind people of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Monroe said April 25 is “Denim Day.” Wear denim that day to show support for survivors. In Italy a rape conviction was overturned by a court because the victim was wearing tight denim jeans. The board adopted a proclamation declaring April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month. •Section 8 (housing assistance payments) and the current administration of the program by SE MN Multi-County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (SEMMCHRA) was again discussed. This became an issue when SEMMCHRA asked counties to reimburse them for administrative shortfalls earlier this year. Fillmore County currently has about thirty vouchers. SEMMCHRA has threatened to reassign Fillmore County vouchers to other counties if they become available. It was suggested to get the county attorney involved. Bakke said they need to get moving on this. County Coordinator Karen Brown suggested they ask Housing and Urban Development (HUD) if they are honoring the original administrative agreement (1991) between SEMMCHRA and Bluff Country Housing Rehabilitation Authority (BCHRA). •The low bids, which were both from Minnowa Construction, were accepted for bridge construction (concrete culvert) and approaches on CR 115, Canton Township, section 6 ($134,631.80) and for bridge construction (concrete culvert) and approaches on CSAH 12, Carimona Township, Section 11 ($108,493.20). •A field access permit to CSAH 40 was approved for Sandra Pasche, Section 6, Pilot Mound Township. •Zoning Administrator Chris Graves noted that Canton now has their own zoning ordinance. He added that Ostrander is extremely close to being on their own and Whalan is getting there, as well.

Everyone who is interested in learning more about Habitat and the possibilities in Fillmore County should attend. Habitat will be hosting these meetings in five different communities: •April 17 at 7:00 pm at the Spring Valley Fire Hall, 120 W. Courtland

loans. To qualify for a Habitat home, families must currently live in substandard housing, be unable to obtain a conventional loan from a bank, have the resources to pay a monthly mortgage and be willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity. Before moving into a Habitat home, families must contribute 300 hours of “sweat-equity” to the building of the home and must make a modest down payment. Habitat for Humanity doesn’t just build homes; we build Relationships, we build Community, we build Hope. Habitat is able to help families in need only through the generosity of many kind individuals, businesses, churches and organizations throughout the area.

Gospel Quartet Group comes to Preston The name Still Water may be new to some gospel music fans, but the sounds, energy and faces will be very familiar. Founded in 1994, this group of men has brought their unique talents and ministry to folks all across the country. And even though the group has been together for a relatively short time, God began working many years ago to mold and form exactly what he needed. The group brings together over 90 years of musical

experience. The Lord has blessed Still

Water in many ways and taken them many miles to deliver the

message of Jesus Christ. A Still Water concert is far more than just rich vocals and wonderful arrangements, it is a time of spirit-filled ministry. Their blend of Traditional Southern Gospel styling with modern harmonies has had an impact on audiences in just about every setting one could imagine. Still Water will be in concert at the First Baptist Church in Preston on Sunday, April 29, 2012, at 6:00 p.m. All are welcome!

said these synthetic drugs have become a big problem in many areas, as they are marketed as something innocent. “Bath salts are just as bad, if not worse, than cocaine or meth,” said Miller. Miller also mentioned the Greater Minnesota Internship Program, which gives incentives to give opportunities for internships. “A lot of internships lead to full-time jobs,” explained Miller. “The intent is to create more jobs in greater Minnesota.” Miles Petrie, owner of On the Crunchy Side, noted that Miller voted against the State voter ID bill. This would have required all voters to present a photo ID card in order to be able to vote. Petrie asked why he voted against it. “I support the concept of photo IDs,” said Miller. “We need to address the integrity issue of voting. I just don’t think it’s good public policy to legislate through the constitution.” There are certain things that concern Miller about the bill. “We don’t know the cost, or the consequences,” he said. He added that in District 31, which he represents, there are 4,900 registered voters that do not have a current valid photo ID. Petrie stated that people need

to be tallied and identified for voting, and that voter fraud is a real issue. “If people are going to be tallied and entered into a computer, how can you prove who you are?” he asked. “There need to be safeguards put into place.” Petrie also stated that he, as a taxpayer, would not like to pay for everyone to get a photo ID. “We do need to address the issue, but not through the constitution,” said Miller. Petrie also spoke about the money available to people in Harmony, and other small towns, to open up new businesses. There are loan programs and incentives through the EDA (Economic Development Authority) that a lot of people might not be aware of. Miller shared that he is 29 years old; the youngest State Senator right now, and the second youngest in Minnesota history. He lives in Winona with his wife Janelle and infant son. He works with his family at William Miller Scrap Iron and Metal doing accounting and finance. He graduated from Winona State in 2001. To contact Senator Miller with questions, he can be reached at 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Capitol Building, Room 320, St. Paul, MN 55155-1606.

Fillmore County Sports Opening Day: Bulldogs & Gophers go MLB-way By Paul Trende High school baseball games are (scheduled to be) 7 inning affairs. The GMLOK and Chatfield baseball squads decided to act like pros for their first game of the season. They went 9 innings, flirted with darkness-induced suspension, but in the end a verdict was sealed, at the very last moment. The Gophers jumped ahead early, 2-0 after two innings, 4-2 after four (4-3 after five). In the top of the sixth, the visiting Bulldogs utilized a couple walks, a couple Gopher miscues (one error, one wild pitch), and a couple hits, the biggest a 2-run single by junior 3B Marshall Oeltjen, to score four runs (all with 2 outs). GMLOK took their first lead 7-4. It remained that way until the bottom of the seventh, where the Gophers utilized three walks and a couple of Bulldog errors to score three runs (the last courtesy of a wild pitch). They tied the game without a hit in the inning. Eleven men came up, and eleven went down in extra frames (2 2/3 innings), leaving Chatfield to their last out (the game was to be suspended). Mitch Narveson then ‘took one for the team’ (got hit by a pitch). Leadoff man, second basemen Zach Eggers fell behind 1-and-2 before fouling off six straight pitches. The 10th pitch was wild, allowing Narveson to take second. The eleventh was spanked through the hole in the right side of the infield. Eggers’ single plated the winning run; giving the Gopher’s the dramatic victory. The end was fitting, as Narveson (2-2, 2B, 2 BB’s, HBP, 3 R’s, RBI, reached safely in all five plate-appearances) and Eggers (3-6, SB, RBI) were the Gophers to best offensive weapons. Jake Neis was also very busy, going 1 for 2 but reaching three times via walk. Nate Skare got the win, facing three and setting down three in the top of the 9th. Trenton Bleifus took the loss (4 2/3 IP, 1 H, 3 R’s, 6 K’s, 5 BB’s). Bleifus did do his part at the plate, going 3-5 with an RBI, a SB, and a run-scored. Oeltjen (2 RBI’s, SB) and Trevor Gomer each went 2-5. Sam Eberle was 1 for 4, but scored two runs and stole two bases. The Bulldogs had seven thefts as a team. Chatfield used four pitchers and was out-hit 11 to 7. Game Two, Skare & Gophers 2-0 Sophomore pitcher Nate Skare’s hurling abilities were only needed briefly in the season opener (versus GMLOK). Two days later, he took the mound as the starter against northern rival Dover-Eyota. He worked much longer. He was impressive. Skare relinquished just one run on three hits over five innings. He struck out nine (at least one in every inning) and walked none.

Offensively, he helped himself, chopping a two-run single up the middle in the first inning. Those runs would prove enough for a Gopher victory. They weren’t all that crossed home plate Brian Baum’s club. Chatfield broke open a 2 to 1 contest in the fifth inning. A 2-run double to the right field wall by Tyler Lund was the (inning and game’s) biggest blast. Mitch Irish and Colin Maki also notched RBI’s, giving the Goph’s a 6-1 edge. They added three more in the sixth inning (two courtesy of a Jason Kappers single). A close game most of the way ended with Chatfield winning 9 to 1. They improved their record to 2-0. Skare owns both pitching victories. In addition to the above efforts, two-hole hitter Jake Neis went 2 for 3 with a walk, a SB, and three runs scored. In addition to Skare’s 9 K’s, Tyler Lund added two giving the team 11 (with only 1 BB). Dover-Eyota, by contrast, had five BB’s (and a hitbatsmen) with only 2 strikeouts. All of Chatfield’s runs scored with 2 outs. Baseball 04-02 •Lyle/Pacelli 3, Mabel-Canton 2 (M-C: Donnie Lind 2-3, SB; Gabe Lind 1-4, 2B, RBI. L/P: Jonah Rohne 6 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 5 BB’s, 8 K’s, Win.

Spring activities are flourishing Spring is a busy time for us here at Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF), especially in our early childhood program areas. We continue to invest in this area to prepare the youngest citizens of our region to be the workers, leaders, and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. We invite you to celebrate the Week of Young Child, April 22-28 with us. This year’s theme is “Early Years Are Learning Years.” (For more information about the Week of the Young Child, visit http://www.naeyc.org.) One way we’re marking this annual event is by bringing attention to the ways SMIF is investing in early childhood. In this month’s column I’d like to share briefly about some of current early childhood efforts. We’re just launching our newest early childhood program“Parenting Matters...a workplace education program” at Lakeview

Health Services in Fairmont in partnership with the Fairmont Early Childhood Initiative Coalition (ECI). We know that many working families find it difficult to participate in the traditional parenting classes due to conflicting work schedules, time commitments, and cost. To help remove these barriers, SMIF and the Fairmont ECI is engaging parents where they spend a majority of their time-the workplace. We anticipate that over time dozens of businesses will take advantage of this program as a way to help their employees become better parents. Research shows that employees who believe they are good parents are also better employees. For us, that translates into a win-win for everyone-the business, the community and the families. Another unique way we are investing in early childhood is by

FILLMORE COUNTY JOURNAL

Monday, April 16, 2012 providing free books to organizations through our BookStart grant program. Our 10-year partnership with Capstone is continuing to grow, as they have graciously doubled the number of books available to 10,000. We are also pleased to be able to offer awardees the option to select from a limited number of board books and bilingual (Spanish and English) books as well as a wide variety of other early childhood books. (Applications for BookStart are due April 17.) We are also recruiting new AmeriCorps LEAP members for our 2012-2013 year of service. LEAP participants are placed in early learning centers (typically Head Start sites), and they help address the area of social and emotional skills in children ages 0-5, targeted to children of lowincome families. This effort leads to skill-building and improves school readiness, which is critical to a successful transition into kindergarten. (Applications for AmeriCorps LEAP members are due June 30.) In addition to these earlychildhood efforts, we’ll also be announcing the recipients of our bi-annual Incentive Grants. We know that many of these grant recipients will be early childhood projects. Grantees will receive up to $20,000 for efforts focused on early childhood development-with entrepreneur development being our other focus area for these grants. Soon we will also announce the

recipients of our Picture-It-Painted awards. This annual program, in partnership with Valspar Corporation, provides free paint for community restoration or beautification projects that encourage local volunteer involvement and community engagement. Early childhood sites are often the beneficiaries of this paint program. And finally, our Board of Trustees and Staff are gearing up for a community site visit to Austin next month on April 19. This annual event to a selected com-

munity is a way for us to celebrate our accomplishments and spend time visiting with some of our local partners. We plan to visit an early childhood partner, two entrepreneurs in Brownsdale, and the Hormel Institute.

The Official Legal Newspaper for Fillmore County

Board of Equalization hearing held in Lanesboro By Jade Sexton Ron Vikre came to the Lanesboro City Council meeting on April 9 from the Fillmore County Assessor’s Office to discuss property values. Julie Charlebois, owner of Riverside on the Root and Root River Outfitters, asked why she is paying 15 percent more for one building and ten percent more for the other. Both are commercial buildings. Vikre said he would look into it for her. Rick Lamon from the Lanesboro Grocery Store LLC, spoke to the council about the value of the old grocery store. He said the building still carries a value of $111,000. It was previously valued at $152,000, and was reduced during the last assessment due to depreciation of the building. Lamon asked if the city would consider lowering it more, as it is unlikely a person could generate

nning 4/15/2012

any income from it, and it would need a lot of work. Right now the building is for sale for $89,900, which is $20,000 less than it is valued. Vikre said he met with Lamon a year ago and reduced the value at that time. Mayor Steve Rahn made a motion to reduce the value to $95,000, and the motion passed. Garbage Proposals The city recently sent out a request for garbage proposals. They received quotes from Waste Management, Richard’s Sanitation, Harter’s, and Veolia. Each company was represented at the meeting, and had a chance to speak to the council about their services. Waste Management, who has been serving Lanesboro for the last five years, had two different options; one with bags or a cart, and one with just carts. Richard’s Sanitation

had similar choices, as did Harter’s. Veolia said they do not use bags any longer, and they offer two cart sizes. Council members felt they did not have enough time to look over the proposals, so a continuation of the meeting will be on Monday, April 16 at 5:30, and they will make a decision then. Street Assessments Robert Thompson returned to the city council to further discuss street assessments made with the Whittier Street project. He said he checked with six different cities in the area and asked how they handled special assessments. Chatfield does not use special assessments at all. Assessments in Preston do not include utilities. Dover is doing a street project, and the assessment will be $25 per foot. Thompson said they did not want to go higher than that because it could be a hardship for people. “If you take a good hard look at this, I think you will remove the utilities,” said Thompson. Council member Ceil Allen asked, “Didn’t you already take this to court, and didn’t the judge already give you a decision?” Thompson replied, “Just because a judge says it doesn’t make it right. I’m appealing to common sense here.” Other Business Rick Lamon said he is fine with the alley agreement, and

will take out the wording about future owners. The city approved the donation of the alley property, and agreed to pay half of his survey costs, which came to $400. Ceil Allen said the library board is looking into getting new signage for the front of the building to better direct people to the library. The park board also discussed this at their meeting. The council approved a membership with the Iowa Confer-

ence/County Historical Society. The council thanked S&A Petroleum for the scoreboard donation, and they will be taking bids for the old scoreboard. The council approved the following items: •The Election Polling Place Resolution •a gambling license for the Lions raffle •gambling licenses and liquor licenses for Buffalo Bill Days and the Turkey Federation •lodging license approvals for 2012-2013

This list is published to inform all persons that the listed property is subject to forfeiture because of delinquent taxes. The property owner, taxpayer, or other interested person must either pay the tax and penalty, plus interest and costs, or file a written objection with the Fillmore County Court Administrator. The objection must be filed by May 7, 2012, stating the reason why the tax or penalty is not due on the property. If no objection is filed, a court judgment will be entered against the property for the unpaid tax, penalty, interest, and costs. For property under court judgment, the period of redemption begins on May 14, 2012, and ends three to five years later, depending on the type of property and where it is located. The period of redemption means the time within which taxes must be paid to avoid losing the property through forfeiture. To avoid forfeiture, taxes on property located within a township must be paid by May 14, 2017. Taxes must also be paid by May 14, 2017, if the property is one of the following types in a city: (1) residential homestead, (2) farm homestead, (3) private cabins, (4) resorts occupied by the owner, and (5) resorts in operation for not more than 225 days a year. Payment of tax by May 14, 2015, is necessary to avoid forfeiture of any property in a city which is not described in the preceding sentence.

Real Bites

Monday, April 16, 2012

I’m back, and I’m hungry By Jason Sethre jsethre@fillmorecountyjournal.com By now, you’ve probably heard of the new restaurant

in Rushford named Lynndyn Bridge. After we ran an article on our March 16, 2012, front page about this fine new restau-

rant, I had to make it a priority to make this my first Real Bites stop of 2012. Right when I walked in the door, I was greeted and seated with a welcoming smile. Both Lynn Halverson and Bridgette Kampa, owners of Lynndyn Bridge (do you see where they get the name?), work directly with the customers, from hosting to waiting tables. To me, that’s what makes small towns so charming. The owners are involved in their business, connecting with the customers every day. As I sat at the table, I looked around and there was a pretty good crowd that day. As a matter of fact, a group of retired Minnesota State Troopers were gathered at a table near the back of the restaurant. And, I didn’t even see donuts on the menu? That’s a joke to my officer friends! I scanned the menu and Raspberry Chicken Dinner caught my eye. Being the carnivorous gent that I am, I couldn’t resist another variation of meat. When my food came, I could

smell the delicious raspberry sauce smothering the skinless, boneless, tender chicken breast atop a pile of wild rice. It lived up to its smell, as I consumed the entire plate of food. Let me just say, I was a member of “The Clean Plate Club.” And, you know what the means? Dessert! I wish I had enough space with this week’s Real Bites to include a picture of the dessert, as well. It was phenomenal! It’s a very good thing to see

new restaurants popping up in each of our communities in Fillmore County. It seems to me that with each one being so distinct in what they have to offer, they add a little variety to our daily lives -- options! Whether taking the family out to eat, or making plans for dinner-for-two for a wedding anniversary, I really think Lynndyn Bridge has created a niche that gives people in the Rushford area (and beyond) another option.

Spring Valley residents contest property values By Gary Peterson Every year the Spring Valley City Council invites Brian Hoff of the Fillmore County Assessor’s Office in to talk about property valuations and occasionally there are citizens in attendance to plead their case in lowering their taxes because they believe the property assessments are too high. Valuation on Finley Property on Valley Ave Goes to the County Louie Finley owns a vacant lot at 515 Valley Avenue in Spring Valley. The lot is 88’x103’ and Finley maintains that it isn’t a buildable lot. The property valuation is $15,900 which is within the

accepted standards of $1.75 per square foot according to Hoff. He brought to the council various pictures of the property and has had Hoff inspect the property. Administrator Deb Zimmer said the lot is buildable with some restrictions and would hesitate in lowering the assessment because there are other comparable properties in the neighborhood. The City Council will be requesting the County to look at the other lots and see if their valuation is in line with the property owned by Finley. Red Essig Successful in Getting Property Valuation Lowered Red Essig was a bit more suc-

cessful. He was appealing the valuation of the old Home Federal Building. He sent his appeal through Brian Hoff who said that this last year the valuation went up $10,000 because of new regulations regarding Heating and Air Conditioning which was automatically tacked on to the property valuation. The City Council decided to reduce the valuation of $10,000 to $5,000. Hoff said that he doesn’t know if that will be acceptable to Essig or not. The Fillmore County Valuation Summary for the 2012 Assessment found that in Spring Valley

Havana was born February 12, 2012. She is a brindle color. We think she may have boxer and Saint Bernard in her because of her size and also her brindling markings. We know the father is purebred Australian Shepard, but was told the mother is a mutt. Havana is very cuddly and friendly. She does well with other animals.

the total value is $113,969,944. There was $454,300 in new construction, Ag land of $4,859.144, Residential of $89,607,100. Seasonal Rec was listed at $2,776,700 and commercial at $16,736,000. The City Council has received a request from LYP, Lumberyard Partnership to consider lowering the assessments on several lots in the North Park Townhome Subdivision. LYP sold the old FCLM lumberyard property to the City for $1.00 in exchange for the property owned by the city on North Park Drive. There was a development agreement with the city was to develop 24 townhome lots and to complete the building of the 24 homes by 2006 to avoid paying assessments.

Page 15

According to the request sent out from LYP, they built six units in 2003 but the others remain undone. When the dates were not met the City imposed a $1,200 assessment on each unit. As a result, there were 18 lots with a $1,200 penalty each which brings the total to $21,600 per year. LYP wanted to know if the penalty gets paid each year, would that reduce the $9,507 assessment they owe on each lot by the same amount? In 2006 LYP requested the assessments be forgiven and it was denied at that time. Now they want all assessments be forgiven. Mayor Struzyk and the Council appeared to be with the same conclusion: “that the request be denied.”

Bigalk Rollerskating Reunion party to be held Sunday, April 22 in Harmony By Theresa Bigalk It has been 25 years since Arlene and Earl Bigalk passed away. Their deaths were a shocking and devasting loss to their family and the community. Arlene died on April 20, 1987, at the age of 45, after an eight-month battle with leukemia. Nine days later Earl, age 47, died of a massive heart attack. They left behind seven children, ages 14-25 at the time: Kevin, Keith, Karolin, Kendall, Karen, Karl, and Kory…..the 7 K’s is what they were called. Arlene and Earl owned and operated the local roller skating rink for over 20 years, before it was destroyed by fire. They also operated the local Bigalk Burger Barn. In newspaper articles written after their death, Arlene was described by those in the community as a second mom to the youngsters at the roller rink and burger barn. She was remembered as caring and concerned not only about her own kids, but others in general. She was the leader of the party and enjoyed her card clubs and bowling. Earl was remembered as a hard working family and community man. He was a youth minded man who always encouraged the young athletes and enjoyed attended sporting events. The skating rink is where Arlene and Earl first met. In the 20 years they owned it, they always lead the couple’s grand march. “They were really good

nning 4/15/2012

at skating and everybody at the rink called them Ma and Pa,” said Keith. “I remember playing hockey on Sunday nights after we would lock up,” recalls Kevin. “Dad, along with the older kids and adults would play hockey while Mom and the ladies sat and played cards. I remember we really busted up those windows with the hockey puck.” Beyond the roller skates, the Bigalks recall other family adventures of piling all nine of them up on their toboggan and coasting down the snow covered hills of their farm. In the summer there are the memories of showing cattle at the Fillmore County Fair. “Once I was showing a calf and it went wild and knocked over the tent on top of the judges and queens,” Kory said. “Dad was always in the ring at fair time and we would be running around trying to catch my calf.” Karolin said, “Every year mom would tell dad that this is the last year of this, but we would always be back at it the next year.” The support for the family over the years has been tremendous and greatly appreciated by the children. Bob and Judy Peters of Harmony graciously accepted Kory and Karl into their family so that they could stay in Harmony and finish their high school years. The Barb and Lynn Aggen family were also a big help to the boys with their

4-H projects over the years. The farm ended up being sold at an auction in 1990, due to the farm crisis. The burger barn was sold in 1987, a few months after they died, and has since been torn down. The roller skating rink was rebuilt in 1988 and is still operating in Harmony. On behalf of the Bigalk children, “We would like to express our gratitude for the love and support from family, friends and the community who helped us through this tragedy in our young lives. We will be forever grateful.” The Bigalk children today •Kevin, 51 Kevin and Joyce Bigalk live on acreage near Austin. Kevin has been employed at Hormel Food for 25 years. They have four stepchildren and 28 grandchildren, which keeps them busy. •Keith, 49 Keith and Susie live in Canton. Susie runs a hair salon out of her house and Keith works for a pipeline company. Their daughter, Bobbie Jo was married last August to Michael Steward and resides in Missouri. Bobbie Jo works for a private preschool, teaching students with Autism. Michael is a Business Director for a technology company. •Karolin, 47 Karolin and Pete Lex were married in 1987 and reside in Zumbrota, MN. They have one daughter, Whitney, 18, who is a freshman at Univ. of Wisc. Stout. Karolin graduated from the U of MN with a degree in Agricultural Education and worked in the ag industry for fiveyears before launching her career in the financial services industry. Karolin is a Certified Financial Planner and owns Lex and Associates, a financial advisory practice of Ameriprise Financial in Zumbrota. Karolin said, “I love the opportunity to help people with such an important aspect of their life. Frequently, I share my story about losing my parents at ages 45 and 47 and how it’s good to be prepared for the unexpected.” In  their free time, Karolin, Pete and Whitney enjoy traveling to warm destinations and spending time with family. “Despite the great loss of our parents, I feel very blessed for the love, support and friendship of so many different people that helped us become the productive people we are today. We are all blessed with wonderful families, healthy children and gainful employment.  Thank you to all of you who have touched our lives!!!” said Karolin.  •Kendall, 45 Kendall and Theresa were married in 1991 and reside on acreage near Goodhue. Kendall is an Electrical Lineman and has worked for Goodhue County Electric Cooperative in Zumbrota for 20 years. Theresa is the Director of Sales and Marketing for a Healthcare Company in Rochester.

In their free time they enjoy spending time with family, hunting, fishing and sports. Kendall said, “I am thankful for all the people who helped our family after the loss of our parents. Even after 25 years, there is not a day that goes by that I do not think of them. It is a daily reminder of how important family is and to cherish each day we have with those we love.” •Karen, 44 Karen and her children live in the country near Cherry Grove, MN.

Together they enjoy riding horse, camping, riding dirt bikes, 4-wheelers, hunting, and trapping. Karen said, “I am so thankful for the great example our parents set for us kids. I am amazed at all our parents accomplished in their short lives. When I think I am busy now days, I often think of my parents with us 7 kids and all the activities we were all in.  They were there supporting us all the way!”

To begin, I have to note that I did borrow the title of Willie Nelson’s hit “On the Road Again” for my own title as Lanesboro’s Class of 2012 was recently “traveling places that [they’ve] never been.” In the early morning of March 28, my class and I left our homes behind and embarked on an adventure that would change us forever. Leaving Mitchell behind the Walbridge s m a l l - t ow n atmosphere of southeastern Minnesota, in just a few hours we found ourselves in the “windy city,” Chicago, making our way to the top of Willis Tower and touring Millennium Park. Later that day, we traveled several more miles to tour part of the Notre Dame campus before settling down for the evening in Ohio. An early morning wake-up call the next day landed us in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the location of the bloody, three-day battle of the civil war where Union and Confederate soldiers clashed. Two days in Gettysburg was only enough time to explore a small fraction of the 6,000 acre battlefield with its many monuments and expansive history. This sacred ground proved to be a favorite highlight of our eighteen student group. As you can ask anyone in our small tour group, the events we experienced at Gettysburg on our tour impacted everyone deeply. Not only did the cross-country tour teach us a lot about our country’s history, but we also experienced some of the beauty our country has to offer. After leaving Gettysburg we were able to drive through a portion of Shenandoah National Park and proceed through the Blue Ridge Mountains until we arrived for our overnight stay in Charlottesville, Virginia. The next day we began our exploration of Virginia’s landmarks including the breathtaking mountain top view of Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello. In the afternoon we made our way to colonial Williamsburg, Virginia for a look inside the Royal Governor’s Palace and the rest of the historic town. On April Fools’ Day we finally

Washington, D.C. For the next four days, the District of Columbia would serve as home for Lanesboro’s seniors. Tours of downtown Washington, D.C. which included many monuments, memorials, the Capitol building, the White House, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, and many other sites were a great chance for discovery of our nation’s prestigious, large-scale landmarks. Among them were the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Vietnam Wall, and the Korean War Memorial. In addition to viewing many sites and monuments in Washington D.C., the Lanesboro senior class was able to attend a number of special events. The first was an informative, entertaining, and engaging viewing of the Ford Theatre’s production of “1776,” a capturing theatrical performance of how our founding fathers struggled with the decision to proclaim independence. Secondly, another special event was a dinner-dance cruise on the Potomac River aboard the Riverboat “Dandy.” Finally, one of the most life altering experiences was the changing of the guard and wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. Before departing for Minnesota we had the opportunity for independent discovery in the Holo-

caust Memorial Museum, Smithsonian American History Museum, and the National Gallery of Art. Traveling homebound for Minnesota was an emotional time for everyone as we reflected on how we had spent the past nine days of our lives. Since our days together as classmates in elementary school seeing senior classes leave and return from this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, we longed for our turn. Personally, I can say that these were the fastest nine days of my life. I can also say that we, as a class, took full advantage of this unique journey. For this, I owe a special thank you to our great travel guide and life-long teacher Dave Zimmer and our chaperones John Smith and Chris Knutson. Some recognition also needs to be directed towards one of the best drivers on our interstates, Mark Kumpf who has a ‘HUGE’ variety of skills when driving a 55+ passenger bus. In the back of our minds we all knew that we have under two months left together as seniors before we venture our separate ways. Looking at the recap of our senior class trip above, there are a number of untold stories (some of them emotional, some sad, and some comical) that the Class of 2012 can fill in the spaces. With these memories anchored in our minds, they bond us together as a family, now and forever. Mitchell Walbridge is a student at Lanesboro High School. He is one of 8 area students participating in the Journal Writing Project, now in its thirteenth year.

Judge’s decision favors the City of Preston By Karen Reisner Judge Jeffrey Thompson, Winona County, had presided at a hearing on November 28, 2011, at the Fillmore County Courthouse concerning the city of Preston’s power of eminent domain to acquire two properties for the Preston-Forestville Recreational Trail System. A decision was recently handed down which favors the city. History The city of Preston exercised their power of eminent domain to acquire 5.99 acres that they deemed necessary to construct the trail connecting Preston and Forestville State Park on March 2, 2009. The trail was planned to be a segment of the Blufflands Trail System. Over a span of fifteen or more years there was an effort to acquire the needed property. By 2005 seventeen of the properties from different landowners had been acquired for the trail right of way. Properties owned by the John Snyder family and the Vernon Ristau family were the only properties not acquired. There had been continuing negotiations to acquire these properties through the years. The trail is to be about ten miles long, ten feet wide with a sixty foot right of way. The parcels the city of Preston exercised its power of eminent domain to acquire included a 2.18 acre parcel owned by John and Bernadette Snyder and a total of 3.81

acres owned by Vernon and Kay Ristau. The Snyders and the Ristaus commenced a lawsuit against the DNR and the city of Preston in October of 2009. A court hearing was held in Winona in August of 2010 on environmental issues. The plaintiffs requested the DNR to be required to do, at a minimum, an environmental assessment worksheet. In October of 2010 Judge Thompson dismissed the claim against the DNR saying the plaintiffs lacked proof of their claim. Plaintiffs had argued the construction of bridges and culverts will damage water quality and trout stream habitat. Thompson determined the evidence provided on these issues was neither relevant or consequential. During the fall of 2010 a portion of the trail was constructed west of Preston including a bridge and about a mile of the trail. November 28, 2011 Hearing Three issues were argued during the eminent domain hearing. Is the private property the city wants to acquire for the trail for a public purpose and a public use? Is the property “reasonably necessary” to achieve the public purpose? Does the city have the authority to acquire the property? The city’s attorneys David Joerg and Dwight Luhmann argued that state statute gives the city

Monday, April 16, 2012 the authority to exercise eminent domain to acquire private property within or outside the city limits for a purpose authorized by law. They also argued that the planned section of trail is part of a state authorized trail system and is for public use. Alternate routes were not reasonable due to steep grades. Attorneys Larry Peterson and Brent Kleffman representing the Snyders and the Ristaus presented testimony that Carimona Township membership present at a 2000 annual meeting voted unanimously against the development of bicycle trails in their township. Family members testified as to their belief that the construction of the trail would cause more flooding in the flood plain. Peterson argued that legislation authorizing the Blufflands Trail System does not refer to a segment between Preston and Forestville State Park. He insisted that this planned section of trail has not been authorized by the state. Comments on the Decision Attorney David Joerg in a telephone interview said “he was very happy with the court’s decision.” The major issue in this case has been decided in favor of the city of Preston. If the families don’t decide to appeal the judge’s decision, then the next issue to be determined is the amount of money the landowners are entitled to for the parcels. If they are not satisfied with that determination, they could go to court and could possibly have a jury trial on that

Book Signing event Saturday in Harmony The Harmony Arts Board is hosting a book signing event this Saturday, April 21 from 4 - 6 pm at On the Crunchy Side restaurant in Harmony. The event is in honor of the recently released book, Brothers in the Water- The Rushford Volunteer Firemen and the Flood of 2007 written by Bonnie Flaig Prinsen with the Rushford Firemen. An “Author Speak” presentation will be held at 4:30 pm. Bonnie Flaig Prinsen will speak about the process of writing this book. When asked to comment about this upcoming event, Bonnie responded, “Since the publication of Brothers in The Water I have had so many rewarding conversations with people, and I realize the importance of writing down and publishing this kind of local history. I continue to be amazed when I think of what the Rushford volunteer firemen were doing in the early morning hours of the flood back in 2007. I truly believe that they, and all volunteer fire fighters, represent the best of what we humans are capable of. “In addition, they are just a great group of guys and we’ve shared some laughs. I will always be thankful that they allowed me to be part of telling their story.” The book, which details the historic Rushford flood, is based on interviews Prinsen conducted with the volunteer fire fighters who were instrumental in evacuating the town of 1,700 residents on August

17, 2007. More than seventeen inches of rain fell in a 24-hour period the third weekend in August, 2007— but Rushford residents were not especially worried when they went to bed that Saturday night. Though the area had been prone to flooding in the past, a dike system from the late 1960’s was rated to withstand even the dreaded “100 Year Flood.” But at around 3:00 a.m. Sunday, water from Rush Creek surged over the dikes in what would be labeled a “500 Year Flood,” changing the town and its residents forever. Many stories, both tragic and triumphant, have come from the flood of 2007. Brothers in the Water tells the stories of one group at the forefront of evacuating stranded citizens as their neighborhoods filled with water in the early

morning darkness: the Rushford Volunteer Fire Department. Books will be available for purchase or bring your own copy for the signing. Sales of this heroic, historical book benefit the Rushford Firemen Department Relief Association. The books are currently available in a number of outlets including Rushford Foods, Preston Foods, and Harmony Foods stores. Books also are available through mail order and other locations Appetizers, refreshments and coffee prepared by Chef Miles Petree will be provided by the Harmony Arts Board. Beverages from the bar will be available for purchase. All are welcome to share memories and to celebrate the strength with which the communities of SE MN face disasters.

Ground-breaking in Harmony

On Thursday, April 12, more than 55 volunteers from all over Fillmore County and Winona County held a ground-breaking ceremony for the first Habitat for Humanity home to be constructed in Harmony, Minn. Above, mother Bryna Kohn stands with her three sons, Dyllon, Devan and Dolten. Her family will be working with Habitat for Humanity to construct their new home in the months to come. Little Dolten gave Harmony Mayor Steve Donney an impomptu hug as the mayor walked up to stand and speak before the crowd.

The shoveling began as Megan Grebe spoke to the crowd.

Harmony City Council discusses property values By Jade Sexton Cindy Blagsvedt from the Fillmore County Assessor’s office was at the Harmony City Council meeting on April 10 to discuss property values. A Board of Review was held before the regular meeting for residents who had questions or concerns, or wanted to appeal their valuation. Blagsvedt said they assessed approximately 40 homes in Harmony. There were a few changes to values, mostly based on depreciation, and the council approved of those. Roger and Chris Torgerson were the only residents at the meeting with concerns about their property value. Roger said that his property, Torgerson’s Auto, went up in value last year when everyone else’s went down. He said the value of the blacktop on his property went up when it should have depreciated. It was valued at $1.75 per square foot. Blagsvedt said the price of asphalt has increased a lot. Torgerson said the new cost factor shouldn’t be a part of already existing property. The council approved reducing the value to 60 cents per square foot. Torgerson also had some issue with the value of the building compared with the value of the

buildings nearby. Blagsvedt also gave the council a summary of the recent sales study done in Fillmore County. Audit Report Jason Boynton from Smith Schafer and Associates presented the council with the 2011 audit report. He commented that they should be proud of the work that is done in Harmony financially. The general fund unreserved fund balance, which is $639,263 is 87 percent of the general fund expenditures. Boynton said this is a good number. The fire fund has a balance of negative $214,108 since they bought a fire truck in 2011. There is a cash balance of $121,584 in the revolving loan fund. The Capital Projects fund balance is $360,845, which is for future capital improvements. Money from TIF (Tax Increment Financing) District #1 was used for downtown improvements, commercial rehab, and the 3rd street project. Right now there is around $50,000 left, and Illg expects they will have $130,000 in the fund this year. The district will be decertified by the end of the year, and the money will have to be spent by then.

Council member Gerald Shuck asked how Harmony compares with other cities. Boynton said that Heritage Grove is a concern, but they are making the best of it, and Harmony is not overly strapped with debts. Illg said he thinks Harmony is in a good position right now. He said the Capital Improvement Plan they will be working on with Mike Bubany would help them see how they are doing compared with cities of similar size. The council approved the audit report. Building and Maintenance City Maintenance employee Chris Johnson said they have had trouble with well number one, and have had the motor replaced. There was some discussion about purchasing road salt for next winter. Illg said they are obligated by their contract to purchase either one ton or seven tons by June 1. They must also put in their order for next season by April 17. Johnson said they only used about half of what they purchased for this past winter, leaving around 25 tons. Shuck suggested they buy the seven tons now at last season’s price, since prices will go up for next season. It was agreed to purchase seven tons now, and 15

tons for next season. Hobo Repair Dan Tieffenbacher said the park board is filing an insurance claim to get the Hobo carvings at the trailhead park repaired. There has been some damage and vandalism done, and he requested the city pay the $500 deductible, since they are a city attraction. The council approved. Illg said that Slim Maroushek, who carved the hobos, could potentially repair the statues. He added they might have to be moved if vandalism continues to be a problem. There was a street light put up near there because

of past issues. Other Business Council member Deb Swenson suggested the entrance to the Community Center have some updates made. She said the sidewalk is cracked and the lighting is poor. Illg is going to look into the costs. Corey Tammel was approved for the summer city employee. The council approved two commercial rehab loans as recommended by the EDA. One was for a business to put a new sign and awning up, as well as painting. The other business will be putting new siding and windows in. The land lease for the ARMER tower at the fire hall was approved.

Ellingson Campground CUP By Karen Reisner Scott and Karrie Ellingson requested a conditional use permit for a ten site primitive (tent) campground. The hearing was during the Planning Commission’s April 12 meeting. The Gud-I-Nuff campground will be located two miles northeast of Preston, Section 28, Carrolton Township. The couple is planning 50 foot by 50 foot sites with a 10 foot parking area. Karrie Ellingson said they want big, private sites for families. Porta Potties will be used in the beginning, but there are plans to build a concrete containment or holding tank for sewage. There is a 24 foot by 24 foot shed that will work as an office. Campers will use the basement in the couple’s home in case of a weather emergency. Bob and Sandra Benson were concerned about noise. Scott Ellingson said it would be quiet time after 10:30 p.m. The Ellingson’s said the event they have had in the fall, Scottyfest, is a one day event. It is held to raise money for children in need. During that event, there have been concerns from neighbors over loud music into the night. Karrie Ellingson assured them there will not be any loud music other than for that event and the volume will be reduced for that event also. Two conditions were put on the CUP including a limit of ten campsites and campers must use the campground designated driveway (not the private drive). All campground rules will be printed on the CUP. The request will be considered by the county board on April 24. Camping Cabins and Park Models

The commission had a lengthy discussion on proposed changes to the ordinance pertaining to recreational camping. The intention is to include camping cabins and park model campers. Duane Bakke said they need to distinguish between a park model and a regular motor home. Gary Ruskell said the park models are restricted to 400 square feet. The major concern was to limit the location, so cabins and park models would be kept out of the flood plain. Bakke said campers allowed in the flood plain must be licensed and on wheels so they can be moved out fast and legally. Cabins will be constructed on a concrete slab and they would prefer that park models be put on a concrete slab. Bakke stated that anybody with a current operating campground would have to reapply and do a different site plan it they wanted to add camping cabins. Ruskell maintained that the county can’t regulate everything and that campground owners have to have some responsibility to do the right thing. Bakke suggested they consider setbacks from quarries and feedlots. There is a setback of 1000 feet now for a campground from a dwelling. Another concern is the prevention of a mini subdivision in the Ag District in the event the cabins are no longer used for a campground. There will be language stating that “the property cannot be subdivided if not in accordance with other provisions of the Fillmore County Zoning Ordinance.”
