Residents take county board to task over trails

The McLeod County Board of Commissioners — in particular commissioners Paul Wright and Joe Nagel — took some pointed questions and criticism from two residents at the May 31 board meeting.
Kevin Masrud of Stewart first asked Wright about his response to student questions regarding a resolution the board passed a couple of years ago regarding Second Amendment rights. In particular, the resolution indicated that the county would not support federal action on gun control.
Wright said that the county’s “role is not to make a nullification of a federal law — we don’t have the right to do that.”
Jim Bobier of Acoma Township had some questions about the recently adopted McLeod County Trails Plan, noting that the plan that was posted on the Mid-Minnesota Development Commission’s website does not seem to be complete, as it is apparently missing some appendixes that are cited in the plan.
Bobier said he would like to see the full plan posted on the county website. Commissioner Doug Krueger said he would personally work to get the plan on the website.
Bobier also asked that the county consult with its attorney as to whether it was legal for a commissioner to appoint someone to the trail committee who was not from the commissioner’s district.
