Funding to assist homeowners in replacing subsurface sewage treatment systems is available from the State of Minnesota. The Stearns County Environmental Services Department can apply for these state grants on behalf of homeowners.
Eligibility for the grant requires that the homeowner have low income, the property is homesteaded by the applicant, and that the sewage treatment system is found to be an imminent threat to public health and safety. A sewage treatment system which is discharging sewage or sewage effluent to the ground surface, drainage system, ditch, storm water drain or directly to surface water, or causes a reoccurring sewage backup into a dwelling or other establishment is an imminent threat to public health and safety.
The Kimball Area Chamber of Commerce gave a plant to tne newest business in town: Casey’s General Store.
Schmidty’s Tesoro and C Store was sold last month to Casey’s which has begun some remodeling work inside and out. Many of the staff remain the same. Chris May is the new store manager.
According to regional manager, Nancy McNab, they are remodeling to make things fit, like a pizza oven and mixer for fresh-made dough. In about 6 to 12 months, everything will be remodeled to bring the store up to full Casey’s standards. “In the meantime,” said McNab, “we will offer as much as we can.” Things will be added as quickly as they can. The result, after a full remodel, will be a Casey’s store much like the one in Hutchinson that just finished a remodel.
