On Tuesday, the Faribault County Commissioners approved a resolution for the turn back of Highway 253, from Bricelyn to I-90 and Highway 254, from Frost to I-90.  MnDOT and the County had been working on the agreements to turn back both roads to Faribault County. The agreement has the County taking over the roads in October of this year.

The Board also received the Bi-annual Report from the County EDA, met with representatives from the City of Frost to discuss drainage issues on Highway 254 and tax forfeited properties and approved a resolution in support of a reimbursement grant from the State of Minnesota, in the amount of $34,152.  The grant covers the costs related to the MN-LARS system.
