Supervisors discuss changes in transit program, learn about new drainage district GIS Map

The Wright County Board of Supervisors met Monday morning and heard from various parties on county issues.

                  Sarah Zwiefel from ISU Extension appeared to update the board as to various programs they plan to offer and have offered over the last year. She was excited that they would be offering a Women in Ag course called “Managing for Today and Tomorrow: Farm Transition Planning” that covers business, estate, and retirement planning. Zwiefel explained that the county’s Extension Council has identified various issues that are local priorities for current and future programming, including small business management, food safety, water quality, and beginning farmers. The board thanked Zwiefel and the Extension office for their work for the county.

                  The board next held a discussion regarding changes in the county’s transit program. Due to the loss of MOSAIC in Clarion, the county transit lost a major customer, making it less viable for the county to run the transit program.
