County to reschedule ditch redetermination hearing

McLeod County will hold a new hearing on the redetermination of benefits for County Ditch 20 and County Ditch 22, both of which are in the county’s 5th District.
Fifth District Commissioner Jon Christensen raised the issue at the County Board’s Dec. 16 meeting, saying that some notices sent to property owners for the original hearing, held Nov. 20, had a start time of 9 p.m. rather than 9 a.m.
“Apparently, there were a few people standing around outside the North Complex at 9 p.m.,” said Christensen.
Although the Nov. 20 hearing was well attended (held at 9 a.m.), Christensen said he was afraid there may be repercussions because of the wrong start time on the notices.
“I just don’t have a good feeling about this,” said Christensen.
County Attorney Mike Junge said that if Christensen was uncomfortable, the hearing should be held again with proper notice.
Junge said the new meeting date and time will have to be coordinated with the county auditor and the county’s ditch redetermination consultant.
