Brown Cty Board Meeting Preview 25 Nov 13

The Brown County Board on Tuesday is scheduled to consider transferring more than $16,000 in heating-assistance funds to the Salvation Army. The money is left over contributions from when Brown County Family Services administered the Reach Out for Warmth Energy Assistance Program in past years. The Minnesota Valley Action Council declined the funds when taking over the program, which will now be headed up by the Salvation Army. It’s HeatShare Program is designed to help seniors and disabled people, as well as families with household income interruptions with past due utility bills. The HeatShare program helped 4,300 Minnesota families with more than a million dollars in assistance last year. The Brown County Board meeting starts at 9am Tuesday at the county courthouse in New Ulm.
