Faribault County Passes Resolution Supporting Citizen’s Rights

At their Board meeting on Tuesday, the Faribault County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution that supports the rights of citizens of the County to freely avail themselves of the rights expounded within the constitution and the Board acknowledges the ability of individuals and businesses of Faribault County to determine the best course of action to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The resolution also supports the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that prohibits the state from depriving any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law and in accordance with federal and state law.  The county will not of its own accord, abridge such freedoms and rights.


Commissioners Young, Anderson and Loveall voted yes and Groskreutz and Roper voted no.


The Commissioners also passed a resolution approving the sale of tax forfeited property in the city of Frost.  The selling price of the two parcels is $1 each.


Board members also updated the lease with the City of Blue Earth for Faribault County Economic Development Authority office space in the Ag Center building.  The new lease will have a 2.5% increase and will be effective from February 1st, 2021 through January 31st, 2022.


The Commissioners also approved a liquor license with Sunday sales to the Golden Bubble in Foster Township and heard more complaints about a hog operation, located in Dunbar Township, at their meeting yesterday.
