Goo News!  Hwy 8 is now fully open to traffic from Forest Lake to Taylors Falls.  Crews completed the drainage repairs on Hwy 8 between Washington and Chisago counties a little early.  The work addressed old drainage infrastructure along the highway such as work on culverts, storm systems, and structures. The repairs also included roadside safety work including guardrail upgrades and slope flattening in driveways and connecting roads.  The repairs will improve drainage and safety in the area.

... America's Little Sweden

Incorporated in 1894, Lindström was first settled by Daniel Lindström who left Sweden for America in 1853.  Among the Swedish Emigrants was Erik Norelius, whose personal journals (documented in part) formed the basis of Vilhelm Moberg’s novels of the Swedish Emigration to America.  Moberg’s fictional heroes, Karl-Oskar and Kristina Nilsson, are memorialized in statue at the west end of town as a tribute to the early Swedish immigrants whose descendents continue to populate our area.

**NOTE:  Public Works will be finishing up the work on the Valve Replacement this Thursday (Sept. 20) night starting at midnight again. Water will be SHUT OFF for a period of time in the middle of the night. We did not have all the parts needed for the valve replacement last week. The work is still weather dependent.
