Quiet Zone Update

All of the needed improvements are now in place and the final paperwork has been submitted to certify the Elk River Quiet Zone! While you now see the signs at the crossings that say “No Train Horn”, the whistles are still blowing and will continue until our improvements are certified. Provided all improvements are approved by the BNSF and Federal Railroad Administration, the train horns should stop blowing by the end of February! Thank you for all your patience through this lengthy process.

Hard to Believe! Precinct Caucuses are Coming Soon!

Precinct caucuses will be held on Tuesday, February 6, at 7:00 p.m. at locations set by the parties.

What are Precinct Caucuses?
Precinct caucuses are meetings run by Minnesota’s political parties. They are the first in a series of meetings where parties may endorse candidates, select delegates, and set goals and values (called party platforms). In 2018, one part of precinct caucuses will be a preference ballot for the candidates you want your political party to support for Governor.
