County receives AIS funding

By STAN ROESER For the Independent Review

In an effort to combat Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS), the Meeker County Board of Commissioners has approved the receipt of grants totaling $70,800.

The money comes from a state allocation made to Meeker County to combat the AIS spread. The amount of the various lake allotments was determined by the nine voting members of the Meeker AIS committee, which includes Leo Bauer, Gene Putzier, Karen Langmo, Michael Lies, Mike Solbrack, and Steve Plaiance, along with county board members Dale Fenrich and Mike Huberty.

Clear Lake, Lake Koronis, and Lake Jennie were allotted $10,000, with $9,000 going to Lake Minnie Belle. Grants of $5,000 went to Lake Ripley and Manuella, while several projects at Lake Washington received grants totaling in the $10,000 range.
