News Update: Enhanced Law, Drivers Face Larger Penalty for Texting; NHS named one of the Top Ten Best Western Museum of 2015 by True West Magazine!; Night to Unite, August 4th

Fri, 07/31/2015 - 2:52pm
Enhanced Law, Drivers Face Larger Penalty for Texting

Drivers who repeatedly choose texting over safety while behind the wheel risk a higher fine for violating the law beginning Saturday. Under the enhanced law, drivers face a $225 fine for second and subsequent violations of the texting while driving law, in addition to the current $50 fine. In Minnesota, it is illegal for drivers to read, compose or send texts and emails, and access the web while the vehicle is in motion or a part of traffic. That includes sitting at a stoplight or stop sign. It is also illegal for drivers with a permit or provisional driver’s license to use a cell phone while driving, except for emergencies to call 911. Over the last 5 years in Minnesota 19% of all traffic fatalities and serious injuries were distraction-related and driver inattention was the number on factor in multiple crashes in 2014

News Update:Healthy Communities Initiative Seeking Nominations for Local Leaders; August is Open Season for Canada Geese; Farmington Photo Contest

Thu, 07/30/2015 - 4:41pm

Healthy Communities Initiative Seeking Nominations for Local Leaders Healthy Community Initiative (HCI) is giving the public an opportunity to recognize local individuals who have made an impact in the community. A Project Prevention Champion is someone who has helped provide support for a healthier life in our community. This may be someone who helps reduce risk factors for alcohol and drug abuse, someone who supports recovery, or someone who builds opportunities for our youth and other community members. They can be our friends, neighbors, teachers, mentors, business partners, police officers, health professionals or other community members. HCI hopes to recognize and encourage these leaders in the community by nominating them for the award. For nomination details visit northfieldhci.org. Nomination deadline is August 19th.

August is Open Season for Canada Geese

In order to manage the Canadian Geese population the DNR is once again opening the month of August to Minnesota hunters. From Aug. 8, through Sunday, Aug. 23, it is open season in west-central Minnesota. Individual hunters are allowed to shoot up to 10 Canada geese per day, but there is no limit to the number of Canada geese a hunter can possess.

Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist for the DNR states, “The state’s Canada goose population remains high…. This harvest helps limit the amount of damage the birds cause to crops in the western portion of the state.” The August goose harvest will open only in the intensive harvest zone in west-central Minnesota, with shooting hours from a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. A small game hunting license, special goose permit and state waterfowl stamp are required. Last August, about 5,500 hunters harvested about 21,000 Canada geese, compared to 24,000 in 2013. Factors like weather and progress of small grain harvest tends to affect hunter success.”

Farmington Photo Contest

Farmington is sponsoring a year-round contest for photos to be used in the city’s calendar, promotional materials, website and — new this year — on the streetlight pole banners.  Deadline for entries for the 2016 community calendar is Aug. 17.  Entrants can choose a category — place, activity, natural area or feature — and submit photos that convey a sense of Farmington.  For a complete list of rules or for more details, go to www.ci.farmington.mn.us or call Lena Larson at 651-280-6905 or Danielle Cahlander at 651-280-6807.

Development of City Property in Stoneridge Hills

The Park and Recreation Advisory Board are reviewing the development of the approximately 9 acres of City property located on the north-east corner of the Stoneridge Hills development. The property is about 40% wooded and 60% open. A P&RAB member has proposed developing walking trails on the property. As a first step the P&RAB is requesting the City Council approve a current survey to determine the property boundaries.

​Back to School​

While many school districts have Columbus Day off as a holiday, once again Northfield will not. Superintendent Dr. Chris Richardson, “As we have done, we have to officially declare Columbus Day, not a holiday.” The question is asked every year and the answer remains the same. New this year, the Northfield School District will receive additional funding from the State, “That’s going to give us approximately $225,000 more per year that will help us to do both academic and behavioral interventions.” Superintendent Dr. Chris Richardson said that’s very significant for the district.

It is a great way to learn if you are interested in adding to your botanical skills.” These are all native plants that have been restored from ag land.  Most of the seed will go to restoring more  prairie land in the Arboretum but they will share as well.  This week they’ll meet at 6:30 at the Arb Office.  Call 507-222-4543 for more information.

Today’s news update – Minutiae of Gov’t agency counter intuitive to action of firefighters – still they push forward; NDDC presents mid-year report; Drug Court enters 2nd year with high hopes; Drunk Buster Karts and Safe Ride Home from the Rice County F

Minutiae of Gov’t agency counter intuitive to  action of firefighters – still they push forward

The NAFRS joint powers Board met yesterday.  While they continue to work through the growing pains of becoming a government agency answerable to the public, efforts are being made to navigate the intricacies of the annual operating budget and capital improvement plans.  They approved 3 motions after whittling down the language.  They accepted the Fire Station study without the additional language of reviewing the timeline and budget.  They approved the 2016 operating budget at $525,000.  Again, removing language about when the budget needs to be put in front of the JPA partners, Northfield, Dundas and Rural.  They are well on their way to reaching their goal of a 33% fund reserve. There was some discussion as to the whole process of committees bringing forward information to the full Board for approval and concern by both City Administrators about voting on material not present in the packet.  The Board unanimously approved joining the Houston Galveston Purchasing Cooperative. The City of Northfield used this coop to purchase the $750,000 ladder truck they bought in 2013.  There is no fee to join but they’re obligated to use their service.  The plan is to purchase their main fire truck, the one that responds to all calls, in 2016.  Chair Glen Castore said the truck will cost about $550,000.  Discussion over the financing the fire facility was moved to their August meeting.  The minutiae and slow workings of a government agency, such as a JPA, is vastly different than the immediate and commanding action of a firefighter!

NDDC presents mid-year report

NDDC Director Scot Covey gave a mid-year update to Council. He spoke with over 100 downtown businesses and had 80 in depth conversations with some.  Covey said there were few consistent issues and concerns across business owners. However, parking was a concern, primarily involving enforcement of existing laws, and lack of clear signage.  He began building a database that includes businesses, offices and residential.  While City staff and the Chamber have access to it the public does not.  Covey touched on business recruitment saying there’s little space left in downtown.  Adding too full is also a problem as some businesses wish to expand.  The report he gave to Council is posted on the city’s website under the City Council meeting packet.

Drug Court enters 2nd year with high hopes

Rice County drug court is heading into year 2.  Drug Court Coordinator Carolyn Mnichowicz collects information on the participants, makes sure they have the resources they need for their sobriety and coordinate with all the stakeholders.  The priority of drug court is treatment. Mnichowicz comments that they spend $40,000 a year just for incarceration.  The idea is to reduce recidivism and cost.  She said if you add up everything, there is “immense savings” using drug court.  Rice County is focusing on high risk/high needs people. The program is very individual and not just anybody can qualify for drug court.  The goal is to retrain their brain for recovery and become a productive individual.  Currently they have 9 participants with the goal of 25.  The program is about 18 months long.  Summing up Mnichowicz said it’s amazing to see someone at rock bottom lifted up to their potential.  She encourages those facing the issue within the court system to get in touch with their attorney or probation agent.

Drunk Buster Karts and Safe Ride Home from the Rice County Fair

The Safe Roads Coalition, is co-sponsoring with the Sheriff, Project Prevention (CHC), MADD, and Minnesotans for Safe Driving to bring the Drunk Buster Karts to the fair on Friday evening, 7-9 pm.  Test your driving skills and ride the kart through the course, first while texting and then while wearing the fatal vision goggles.  Free root beer for those participating.    If you stayed too long at the fair and had too much to drink, call First Choice Shuttle at 507-333-0090 for a safe ride home.

Council ok’s Youthprise/HCI partnership/City

Council was asked to become a partner and approve funding to increase youth programs with Youthprise and Northfield Healthy Community Initiative.  Executive Director Zach Pruitt said Youthprise generally works with the Metro but Northfield has an impressive reputation.  We are one of 20 cities nationwide to be invited by the National League of Cities to participate in their Think Tank regarding these types of programs last year.  Through this partnership with Youthprise, they’ll be able to expand the number of high school students serving on Boards and Commissions to 50.  Pruitt says and even more it will increase the quality of experience for both students and adults on the Boards and Commissions.  The goal is to create a state and national model here.  Further they’ll receive an additional $45,000 grant.  Dollars will also provide 25 internships in partnership with the TORCH initiative as well as grow the youth leadership academy.  Councilors voted unanimously to approve the Contract for Services at $50,000 a year for the next 3 years.

County charges Bio Wood for more violations – 2nd time in 2 years

The County has about had it with Bio Wood Processing.  Rice County Commissioner Galen Malecha said this is the 2nd time they’ve taken them to court for violating their Conditional Use Permit.  The County has tried working with them and correct their issues but haven’t had much success.  This time they’ve been charged with 8 violations.  The next possible step is revocation of their CUP.  Malecha said, in his time on the Board, they’ve never revoked a CUP.  Some of their issues include operating outside business hours and no dust control.  Owner Kim Halvorson faces multiple misdemeanor criminal charges.  Last year, she was charged with 12 counts of violating their conditional use permit. She pleaded guilty to two in August and was fined $300 and sentenced to a year of probation.  Bio Wood grinds wood pallets and scrap wood for animal bedding.  Halvorson will appear in court August 18th. She faces up to 90 days in jail, a $1,000 fine, or both, for each of the eight charges. Neighbors have frequently complained of the noise and dust.

Nfld has a new Police Officer

Northfield has a new police officer.  Joshua Nelson grew up in Martin County on the family farm in southwestern Minnesota.  He has extensive experience in Martin County and just last Fall he was named to their SWAT team.  City Clerk Deb Little swore him in.  Nelson has started his field training and is living in Northfield.
