The February 3 meeting of the Todd County Commissioners covered purchasing computers, a new squad car, and rethinking action on a bridge in Birchdale Township and County Ditch 19. Ron Bussman and several others urged the board not to remove the bridge on Prairie Creek on CSAH 2, Birchdale Township. Bussman presented a second petition of those who were opposed to its removal. “With the first petition of about 90 signers, this one brings the total to nearly 200 who don’t want the bridge removed,” he said. Bussman and others asked the board to rescind the resolution they’d passed that approved the engineer’s recommendation.
