Follow through on the effort to bring Heritage Living Center back to solvency. Due to pandemic issues, the county is faced with tough choices due to accumulating losses. The county board has taken steps to find a buyer that would meet this goal. The development of Deep Lake Park. The county recently acquired the 320 acre Val Chatel parcel of land. This land is very unique and will serve as a regional park that will offer camping, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, snowboarding, cross country skiing and other great outdoor activity. Develop economic tools by capturing Enbridge tax capacity. These tools will help the county partner with cities and townships to help encourage responsible economic growth and improved quality of life.
Hubbard county had intended to fund programs with American Rescue Plan money for the development of housing. One would be owner occupied rehabilitation grants to help keep the inventory of homes across the county viable. The second a 29 plus home development with the Heartland Lakes Development Commission (H.L.D.C) and the City of Park Rapids. A.R.P.A funding was mostly used to keep Heritage Living Center operating, These projects will use future economic development tools to fund.
There are tried, proven and secure ways to vote in Minnesota. In person on election day, absentee ballot, by mail or in person and early voting in person. County boards do not have authority to make election law in Minnesota. That is reserved for the state legislature. However, we do oversee the election process along with the canvassing of results in our county. Hubbard County has and will always be an advocate for safe, secure elections. I would continue to protect that record.
The biggest challenges are lack of resources and leadership from the state level for addressing these needs. Mental health issues can present themselves early on in peoples lives. These would be best addressed with specialized services and facilities either shared or on campus in each county or school district. In addition, Hubbard County could use a specialty court for dealing more effectively with drug, alcohol or other non-violent crimes.
Services that protect and serve vital needs of county constituents. Public safety and health, solid waste, highway, Veteran’s services and core government services necessary to maintain a healthy community are priorities. Any time there is a need for budget cuts, one should look carefully at the overall affect to the residents of the county and overall affect on county revenues.
