Brown County Commissioner’s set a public hearing date of November 5 for setting ditch assessments and liens, which range from $2000 to $75,000 in county and judicial ditches.
The board also approved sending letters to Brown County residents about overweight trucks on county roads. Sheriff Rich Hoffmann said he has discussed the issue with the State Patrol. Maintenance costs on county roads have increased 200-300 percent over the past decade, while funding went up only 20 percent. The State Patrol has told Sheriff Hoffmann that they would pull tickets at area elevators.
