Trailblazer finalizes new joint powers agreement

The Trailblazer Joint Powers Board finalized its new joint powers agreement Thursday morning.
The agreement already had been approved by the three entities that make up Trailblazer — McLeod County, Sibley County and Wright County Area Transportation (WCAT).
Attorney Frank Madden, who helped draft the document, noted that one of the changes is that, starting in 2018, the board will have six members, two each from McLeod County, Sibley County and WCAT. Under the current composition, McLeod County has three representatives and Sibley County and WCAT each have two. The document also says that the appointed board members must be elected officials from their entities. A past consideration had been to allow non-elected officials, such as city administrators, to be members of the Trailblazer board.
