Faribault County talks courthouse

BLUE EARTH — The Faribault County Commissioners held a short meeting on Tuesday with very few items on the agenda.

One topic of discussion dealt with reopening the front (east) entrance to the courthouse.

“Has there been any thoughts as to when that may happen?” commissioner Greg Young asked.

County auditor/treasurer/coordinator Darren Allis explained the front entrance has been locked since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I would think we would want to have that entrance available once court cases resume at the courthouse,” Esser commented. “We will consult with our security staff and law enforcement to determine how to proceed.”

Planning and Zoning administrator Loria Rebuffoni joined the meeting online to tell the commissioners the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) completed a year-end review of the county’s delegated feedlot program.

“The review covers the year 2020,” she explained. “MPCA determined the county satisfactorily met 15.25 out of 16 of applicable non-inspection minimum program require- ments. The county also satisfactorily conducted 42.5 inspections of the 293 feedlots required to be registered for an inspection rate of 14.5 percent.”

The board also:

— Appointed Robin Stenzel to a three-year term on the Board of Adjustments.

— Voted to renew the liquor licenses of the Derby Inn, Minn-Iowa Golf Course and Riverside Town & Country Club for the period of April 1, 2021 through March 31, 2022.The Faribault County Commissioners held a short meeting on Tuesday with very few items on the agenda.
