POLK COUNTY COMMISSIONERS UPDATED ON BRIDGES, LANDFILL EXPANSION, AND SOLID WASTE FEES
The Polk County Commissioners met on Tuesday at the Polk County Government Center. Polk County Engineer Richard Sanders asked the commissioners to be the lead applicant for the 2024 Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity Grant Program. The county, along with Norman and Cass Counties, are teaming up to group three bridge projects into the proposal, looking to strengthen the package proposal. The bridges are 5767 (Nielsville), 6676 (Hendrum), and 6646 (Georgetown). “Since 2016, the Nielsville Bridge has been closed due to structure failure/concrete deck failure, so we continue to look for Federal funding to help replace the bridge, and as part of that, it became apparent that the Hendrum Bridge and Hendrum Bridge between Norman County and Trail County, and Clay County and Cass County (in North Dakota) needed to be replaced so we have bundled all three bridges together to help strengthen our application and Polk County is leading the way,” said Sanders. “We hired the consultant, Widseth, to help us with the grant application, stating we are the lead agency and have the ability to get the Federal funds and spend the Federal funds, and we will work with the other counties, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), and North Dakota Department of Transportation to come up with our matching funds.”
