Twin Valley, MN -- The Twin Valley City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night. The council spent the better part of a half hour debating a request to lower or eliminate special tax assessments on property that was purchased via tax forfeiture. Twin Valley Mayor Ben Fall explains the situation and their decision.

Public Works reported that the one of the pumps at the lift station has broken down recently. But because of the age of the pumps, the city council was forced to purchase and install a brand new system at pretty hefty cost.
