To the editor:
Redwood and Renville Counties were recently selected to receive $1.89 million in bonding money from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.
The money will go to the providing infrastructure for a joint material recovery facility to improve collection, processing, and marketing of recyclables
This project, and collaboration that has helped move it forward, is a great example of how stronger partnerships between local and state governments can strengthen infrastructure throughout Minnesota. This new facility will not only provide many needed jobs, but it will also be a significant step forward to improve the quality of life for all of us throughout this region.
I strongly supported this project during the last legislative session and am very pleased that it will finally come to fruition. In my time at the legislature, I have fought for robust bonding bills and will continue to do so in the future.
Rep. Andrew Falk
