Name change for Cook County Planning and Zoning

Tue, 08/23/2016 - 11:23am

As directed at the August 9 county board meeting, Planning and Zoning Director Tim Nelson returned to the board to the costs associated with a name change for the Planning and Zoning department. The proposal changes the department name to the Land Services Department, to better reflect the work done by that department, especially because a Land Services Commissioner is being added to that department.

Nelson told the board that existing stationary would still be used because Planning and Zoning will continue to be a subsection of the Land Services Department, as would Environmental Health. In fact, Nelson said, those departments already have different letterheads.

The cost to change is lessened by the fact that the departments use a computer letterhead template and print business cards themselves as needed. The only printing cost for the county would be for envelopes.

Nelson gave an estimate of $100 to $500 to update stationary and to change the signage at the front foyer and department door. He added there may be some staff time involved in these changes and some time in the Information Services department while changing the website information.

The county board approved the change and Commissioner Gamble said the process to get to this point was well reasoned.

Learn about "Minnesota Gold" at Grand Marais Library

Tue, 08/23/2016 - 11:21am

Minnesotans have long been known for their humble nature and work ethic, and as such have long taken great pride in their athletics.

Minnesota Gold features compelling stories told by 57 Minnesota athletes participating in the Olympics, World Championships, and World Cups from 1948 – 2014. As they pursued their dreams and persevered to compete in the greatest international competitions, these diverse athletes represented their state with dignity and brought pride to sports fans in all regions of Minnesota. With the arrival of the 2016 Olympics, interest in Minnesota’s historical role in the games is enthusiastic. 

Author Patrick “Packy” Mader will present an engaging and unique program focusing on the athletes and his book at the Grand Marais Public Library at 6 p.m. Aug. 24. He will share the memorable conversations he had with these remarkable men and women who honored their sport, their state, and their country on the world stage over the last seven decades.

 For more information contact the library at (218) 387-1140.
