The Marshall County Council approved an appointment to the Koontz Lake Regional Sewer District Board, but it was not easy to find a candidate.
Auditor Penny Lukenbill explained that the Koontz Lake Sewer District board members were attempting to find a Marshall County representative but potential candidates couldn’t regularly attend meetings and the other people the members talked to weren’t interested in serving on the board.
A candidate was found, but he does not reside in the Marshall County area. According to law, the appointee does not necessarily have to be a Marshall County resident, but must live within the Koontz Lake district.
With that, the council approved the appointment of Ronald Armstead to the Koontz Lake Regional District Board.
