Each year the Douglas County Board of Commissioners votes in a new chairperson and vice chairperson. This year, Keith Englund will serve as chair and Jerry Rapp will serve as vice chair.

At their January 7 organizational meeting, commissioners approved their board meeting calendar, determined which committees and task forces they will serve on, and additional meetings they will attend on a regular basis in 2020. They also announced their choices for planning commission appointees.

Each year the board also chooses a newspaper in which to publish legal notices and a company for vehicle maintenance. The board chose the Echo Press Newspaper and Shutter’s Tire and Auto based on information provided in submitted bids.

At the regular board meeting, they approved filling vacancies in the social services department and approved various contracts. Public Works Director Dave Robley received permission to purchase a tandem snowplow truck and motor grader and hire a professional mapping service for the County Road 8 project.

County Coordinator Heather Schlangen also informed the board Douglas County has been presented with a Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust Certificate of Excellence in recognition of Outstanding Experience in Workers’ Compensation.
