Twin Valley, MN -- The Twin Valley City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night. At the meeting, the council finalized an agreement with the Minnesota Department of Transportation, who plan on doing a major road construction project north of the Wild Rice River Bridge at Heiberg Park. Twin Valley Mayor Ben Fall says through their working with the DOT, the council discovered that some of their recently purchased park land may not have been as large as they once thought.

The land in question was reported to be 42 acres according to county tax records. However, it is now known that the land purchased was only 26 acres. Following that discovery, Mayor Fall says that prompted some brief discussion on whether or not the city should look into doing some surveys down the road on other city properties to make sure their records are accurate.
