At the meeting, the board heard from representatives of the Save the Norman County West Elementary Building Committee, Curt Johansen and John Kolness, who presented on some of the potential uses they have for the building. Norman County West Board Chair Brad Merkens says they have a lot of great ideas, but most importantly they want to make sure that the building stays heated and maintained for at least a year while they continue with their planning.
