ST. PAUL - State Rep. Dean Urdahl, R-Grove City, has announced the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority approved a financial package of more than $440,000 for the city of Dassel to use in water-related projects.

It consists of a $352,662 Drinking Water Revolving Fund loan for 20 years at 1.283-percent interest. Another $88,165, which does not have to be repaid, is included in the package. -30- Dean Urdahl represents District 18B in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
