County Receives Clean, Unmodified Audit

The office of the Minnesota State Auditor conducted an annual review of Anoka County’s financial statements and gave the county a clean, unmodified opinion, which is the best review a county can receive. For more information on the audit, click HERE.


All action items were unanimous. 

Improvements Planned at Three County Parks 

The Anoka County Board of Commissioners authorized a Legacy grant agreement for three projects within the county’s regional parks system. The first project is a $1 million wave pool reconstruction and asset management at Bunker Beach Water Park in Coon Rapids. The second involves the allocation of $350,000 for upgrading interpretive displays at Wargo Nature Center in Lino Lakes. The third is purchasing a parcel of land for $315,000 that will expand the Rum River Central Regional Park in Ramsey. To view video on these items, click HERE.

Bids Rejected for Bunker Hills Trails, Bunker Beach Parking Lot Reconstruction 

The board rejected two bids for trail reconstruction at Bunker Hills Regional Park and parking lot reconstruction at Bunker Beach Water Park. Both bids came in higher than expected, so the county is going to wait for a more favorable bid climate and rebid the projects at that time.
