County Board continues to discuss trail committee

McLeod County is still looking to organize a trails plan steering committee.
The Board of Commissioners voted to sign a contract for professional services with the Mid-Minnesota Development Commission (MMDC) at the March 3 meeting at a cost of $7,200.
However, the board tabled the forming of a committee to help with the organization of a McLeod County trail plan until the March 17 board meeting.
County Parks Director Al Koglin said the committee would bring goals and ideas to MMDC, which will help format a plan. Currently, each entity is working on a plan of its own. Koglin added how forming a committee with members from each community will help with collaboration and long-term plans for trails in McLeod County.
“There is no plan on paper,” said Koglin. “Mid-Minnesota would help bring all this information together and write a plan based on what the committee gives it.”
 “In my opinion we will tell them, they don’t tell us,” added Commissioner Paul Wright. “Since trail issues bring up a sense of tension, let us let Mid-Minnesota help us to develop a product. Without that we are not going anywhere.”
