Nicollet County Groundbreaking 27 Mar 14

A groundbreaking ceremony on the new $12-million Nicollet County Health and Human Services building was held Tuesday morning in St. Peter. Nicollet County Administrator Ryan Krosch says that the actual construction of the new building will begin in April. The facility is being paid for with low interest bonds, and will reportedly not affect the tax rate of Nicollet County residents. When completed in August of 2015 it will allow for the consolidation of the county Social Services, Public Health and Veterans Services departments.
