Making improvements to a six-mile stretch of Crow Wing County Road 3 from Crosslake to Fifty Lakes does not sit well with some county residents. Nancy Koch of Crosslake and Ronda Veit of Fifty Lakes discussed their concerns Tuesday, July 23, during the open forum at the Crow Wing County Board meeting.
Will there ever be a permanent fix for the damages done to Big Pine Lake Rock Dam in Crosslake? That was the question brought to the Crow Wing County Board on Tuesday, July 23: What repairs could be done to the dam and, the bigger question, who would design, build and pay for the repairs? County Engineer Tim Bray said the dam is in need of repairs after some unusual rain events. The latest repairs were performed in April and May after the dam sustained flood damage from 2012 and 2013.
