VERNON CENTER MAYOR AND REP. MUNSON PRESENT BOND PROPOSAL

Thursday, March 05, 2020

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Vernon Center Mayor Dana Ziegler and Representative Jeremy Munson (R- Lake Crystal) last night presented their bonding proposal to the Capital Investment Division. This bill would appropriate $7.984 million from the bond proceeds to fund a water and wastewater collection and treatment system in the city of Vernon Center. In the past two years, Vernon Center has sent 14 million gallons of raw sewage into the Blue Earth River. The current wastewater facility does not meet OSHA requirements, and the water distribution system has severe corrosion. The city of Vernon Center has already made significant investments into this $11+ million project (see photos, front to back: Dana Ziegler, Rep. Jeremy Munson)
