COUNTY GOVERNMENT: Environmental worksheet found sufficient for new school
BEMIDJI -- Bemidji Area Schools can scratch another step off the list for the new Gene Dillon Elementary School.
At Tuesday's Beltrami County Board of Commissioners meeting, commissioners voted 3-1 that the school district's Environmental Assessment Worksheet was sufficient for the district’s planned new school and a more in depth Environmental Impact Statement was not necessary.
