Jump starting a New Year

We hope everyone had a good Christmas and we wish you all a happy New Year. Have fun coming up with new resolutions. Mine is to start my car earlier in the mornings, as this weather demands lately. Speaking of the New Year, Douglas County offices will be closed Monday in observance of New Year's Day. We resume normal business hours at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

One county government meeting is scheduled for next week to ease into the year.

The Transportation and Infrastructure Committee meets at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Highway Department, 7417 S County Road E, Hawthorne, to discuss new ATV route connections on county highways.

Meeting agendas and information about Douglas County government is available at I welcome your comments and suggestions and can be reached at (715) 395-1429 or
