Vehicles being ransacked in area


Willow River city councilors were alerted at Monday night’s regular meeting that vehicles are being ransacked in the Willow River area. Councilor Chris Ketchmark said his garage was also entered and gas was stolen. Councilor Sheldon Johnson said he was awakened at 4 a.m. for a similar incident. Residents are asked to be on their guard and report any suspicious activity to the sheriff’s department.

City councilors will advertise for a part-time clerk position and review applicants at a special closed meeting at 6 p.m. April 4 prior to the regular council meeting.

The council will decide next month on the process for auctioning the Doe Street property. Mayor Tom Jensen offered his company, United Country, to “do everything” for $2,000.

A request to own chickens in town was denied because the current ordinance calls for the property owner to have a minimum of 10 acres.

Gerard Bennett, fire chief, asked the city to consider selling the old ambulance to the Pine County Sheriff’s Office at a discount. He reported the progress on bringing a new rig online and said the yearly maintenance on the trucks is being conducted on a rotating basis through the Sandstone prison.

City worker Todd Anderson reported he has been clearing storm drains. He was directed to do some clean-up along the creek on a city lot.
