Anoka County received a 2019 Association of Minnesota Counties Award for its Human Services Leadership Mentorship Program, which was developed to connect new leaders to more experienced staff for increased support, at the association’s annual banquet Dec. 11, 2019, at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. The board recognized county staff for their work on this program and welcomed Ryan Erdman, Association of Minnesota Counties member engagement coordinator, to the meeting to talk about the significance of the award.

MN Tech Corridor Wins AMC Award

The Minnesota Technology Corridor, a collaborative public-private initiative to attract technology companies to the north metro that would benefit from an abundant electrical capacity, unlimited fiber optic bandwidth, large parcels of available land, and the talented workforce in the area, won an Association of Minnesota Counties Award at the association’s annual conference Dec. 11, 2019,  at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. The board also lauded county staff for their hard work on this initiative and thanked regional partners for their involvement.

The board approved a contract in the amount of $56,977 with RJ Marco Construction Inc. for security upgrades in county administration. This project is similar to one the county completed in the attorney’s office to enhance security for employees. For more information on this item, click HERE.

Land Sale Authorized

Land that was purchased in 2007 in Lino Lakes is now back on the market following a board action to advertise its sale.
