The Le Sueur County Board of Commissioners rolled through one of its shortest agendas in recent memory for the Tuesday, May 9 meeting. The agenda was light as presented, and when one of the three presentations was cancelled, the meeting concluded in short order.

Actions and/or discussions:

• The board approved a contract with Blue Water Science for a program using barley straw to reduce phosphorus content in Lake Volney. Contract is for $6,632, covered by a Clean Water Partnership grant from the state.

• Repair requests for County Ditch #54 in Lanesburgh Township and Ditch #57 in Kilkenny were received and referred to the inspectors.

• A request to waive Landshark fees for the cities in the county was granted. The program consists of software used by the county recorder’s office, with services provided to attorneys, banks and realtors at established fees.

• John Bendzick of New Prague asked for board opinion on establishing a commercial zone for his metal fabrication business in Le Sueur County on property owned by his mother just off Highway 13-21, across from the Lanesburgh Township Garage between Montgomery and New Prague. “A commercial zone on a state highway is a logical location,” said Commissioner Bob Culhane. Bendzick was advised to file an application with planning and zoning to start the process.

• Highway Engineer Darrell Pettis presented information on costs for a large culvert on CSAH 15. He will return to the board at a future meeting with additional details and costs.
