The Central Lakes Regional Sanitary District will be allowed to dissolve.
Established in 2003, the district was to construct a wastewater collection system spanning several townships in north-central Minnesota; however, it ran into a number of problems, including opposition from residents. It now plans to dissolve.
Rep. Torrey Westrom (R-Elbow Lake) and Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen (R-Alexandria) sponsor a new law that clarifies statutes so that the district has a path to dissolution. It takes effect upon approval by the affected townships.
