Norman County Board of Commissioners Approves Moving Forward with New Comprehensive Plan

Ada, MN — The Norman County Board of Commissioners approved moving forward with putting together a new county comprehensive plan at their meeting last week. The county is long overdue for a comprehensive plan, as the last one was created more than 50 years ago. Norman County Board Chair Lee Ann Hall says a lot has changed since then and it is time to update the goals and direction for the county.

Halls adds that the purpose of the comprehensive plan is to give the county a template or guideline for the future.

The Norman County Board of Commissioners had some brief discussions about the American Rescue Plan funding. Hall says they will be receiving more than one million dollars, but a lot of questions still remain on how it can be spent.

The Norman County Commission also accepted a technology contract with Morris Electronics, approved a donation of radios from Hennepin County for the Norman County Sheriff’s Office, and approved once again posting for a Deputy Auditor/Treasurer after their previous candidate accepted another offer. The next county commission meeting is July 6th.
