The County of Otter Tail has received a grant from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for the restoration of wetlands and prairie in Phelps Mill County Park. The park is located within central Otter Tail County along the Otter Tail River.

This supports the grant application made to the Minnesota Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR) for grant funding through Minnesota’s Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund (ENRTF). 

Land and resource policy approved

County commissioners, on June 14, approved a resolution giving County Shoreland Management employees discretion to require a professional drawing as part of an application where clarification of issues is needed on lot lines, impervious surface, drainage, or topography.
