Voters Easily Approve Northland Pines Referendum
Published on 02/20/2019 under News Residents of the Northwoods continue to support additional funding for their local schools. Yesterday, on a primary day that was relatively light on races, voters in the Northland Pines School District easily passed a referendum by a nearly 2:1 margin. The district was asking for $4.6 million each of the next three years. That, coupled with additional spending cuts, were to address a projected $5 million budget shortfall. The preliminary vote totals show the measure passing 1,230 to 635. The district was in the final year of a referendum passed in 2016 at $3.9 million annually.

Lincoln County Board Approves Funding for Jail Surveillance System Upgrades
Published on 02/20/2019 under News The Lincoln County Jail surveillance system will likely be getting an upgrade. The $240,000 project came before the Lincoln County Board last evening for approval. The resolution noted that the current jail camera surveillance system is negatively impacting the daily operations of the jail and increasing liability during failures. While Chief Deputy Nate Walrath was on hand to field questions from the supervisors, most were directed towards IT director David Smith. He noted this project would overhaul the cameras, wiring and servers which would allow for most cost efficient upgrades in the future. When asked if if the project could be pushed down the line, Smith noted that the equipment is already past its life-cycle. Supervisor Jeremy Ratliff noted that the current surveillance system was the same analog system from the initial jail construction. The request was included in the 2019 capital improvements budget. At times the supervisors conversation strayed into a greater discussion on the county's reliance on technology. Ultimately, the board voted unanimously to allocate up $240,000 for the project which next heads out to bid.
