MASON CITY – The Cerro Gordo County Supervisors met Tuesday morning at 11:15 a.m. Supervisor Bob Amosson was absent.
County Engineer Mary Kelly told the board that a grant application for culvert replacement and recreational trails was denied, likely due to an abundance of applicants. “There was like 26 or 28 applicants,” she said. Kelly said the county will seek other funding sources for those projects.
Jan Libbey, Coordinator for Healthy Harvest of North Iowa, gave a presentation to the board on the benefits of locally-grown food in the regional economy. Libbey, who farms in rural North Iowa, said that the mission of the group is to create a “sustainable regional food system” through “local food promotional and educational activities.”
An event is planned for April 2nd to promote community awareness. “Working Together to Grow More” will be held at the 4-H Learning Center, North Iowa Fairgrounds in Mason City. Registration forms are now available by contacting Libbey via email.
