(JENKINS, MN) — The city of Jenkins held its latest regular council meeting on Monday, March 8, so we spoke with Mayor Jon Lubke to hear about what was discussed.

Lubke said it was a pretty short meeting, but the council continued with its discussion regarding applying for a grant through Region 5 to make the city more energy efficient. Lubke said the application was approved by the council, and now must go through a few more stages before the city of Jenkins could potentially see the roughly $10,000 they stand to gain.

He then mentioned that the city of Jenkins was considering entering a coalition of local communities dedicated to improving broadband coverage.

We thank Mayor Lubke for his time; our full interview with him may be found below.
