The Hazen City Commission unanimously agreed to purchase land just north of Hazen for relocation of the city’s tree and grass disposal site at its regular meeting Jan. 3 at Hazen City Hall.
The city purchased about 1.9 acres total along County Road 18 about one mile north of Cenex from Jonathan Heine for $10,000. The city will fence in about 1.48 acres for the grass and tree site, while the remaining 0.41 acres will be used by Mercer County as a road right-of-way easement.
The current site, of similar size, is located in west Hazen. The commission’s search for a new site was spurred by plans for residential and commercial development by Minnesota-based Annabelle Homes and the city on the current site. In addition, city planner Steve Frovarp reported that Custer Health informed the city they would no longer issue the city a burn permit in its current location due to smoke issues and proximity to residents. Custer Health had no concerns about burning at the site north of Hazen, Frovarp noted.
