County Buildings and Facilites closed to Public

The Administration Director, Management Committee, Emergency Response Team and Department Directors met to discuss appropriate prevention and protection measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was decided that all County buildings and facilities will be closed to the public effective March 17, 2020 until further notice with the exception of the transfer station which will remain open to the public during adjusted business hours for solid waste disposal.  The Koochiching County Transfer Station is adjusting the hours they are open to the public to Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to Noon effective on Monday, March 23rd. Canister sites schedules will remain unchanged at this time and encourages the public to deliver full loads of waste to reduce the amount of contact between operators and the public.  Questions can be directed to 218-283-1157.
