I received the email below from David J. Minke, Pine County Administrator today.
The county board is interested in meeting with representatives of the townships in the county and asked me to reach out to the township officers association to determine your interest in meeting and potentially set up a meeting. The commissioners are contemplating an informal Committee of the Whole format.
Can you reach out to your township colleagues and let me know if you think there would be interest in such a meeting and any idea for topics.
The county board conducts several meetings around the county. Below is the current schedule of locations and topics. We will likely add to the schedule over the summer as the commissioners identify topics they would like to discuss. We also reserve time at the beginning of each meeting for informal conversation with citizens and city or township officials who may attend. Feel free to share the schedule with anyone who might be interested.
Thank you, David
