Community service program to continue in county

By Staff | Mar 27, 2015

(The following appeared in the March 21 edition of the Tribune.)

The director of the Heart of America Community Service Program will continue to serve, only in a part-time capacity.

Yvonne Hagen, who previously resigned from the position to work as a dispatcher, will work up to 10 hours per week until a new director is found, as discussed at a special meeting of the Pierce County Board of Commissioners Tuesday morning.

Hagen said the program had an estimated 100 pending cases, more than 30 of which arose after January of this year.


The board met with Jessica Tagestad of Wold Engineering to discuss the results of a surge fund bill meeting – which took place last week in Devils Lake. The board has three priority road projects, the Balta and Selz roads as well as the road near the Rugby Golf Course. At the meeting in Devils Lake, the golf course road was not considered a major corridor. A question of safety arose, due to the road’s proximity to the Walking Path.

The county has until the next biennium to use the surge funds.

The board approved a payment of $25,530.97 from the 2011 Disaster Fund to Antelope Lake township for road repairs.

The board approved a variance, filed in late January, for Dick Blomster, of Rugby. Blomster filed a variance to plant trees on a 466.7′ by 466.7′ pasture lot.
