Local lawmakers to host DNR town hall

Representative Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) will host a town hall meeting regarding well and irrigation permitting on Wednesday, July 29 at 8:30 a.m. at the Glenwood State Bank community room in Alexandria. The town hall is free and open to the public.

A number of local legislators as well as officials from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are expected to attend.

“This town hall is a great opportunity for constituents to engage in dialogue with the DNR and lawmakers as we look for ways to make irrigation and well permitting policy more efficient and workable for area farmers,” Franson said. “I strongly encourage anyone who may have questions or concerns to attend this town hall.”

Also scheduled to attend is House Environment and Natural Resources Policy and Finance Committee chair Representative Denny McNamara (R- Hastings).
