Local legislators host forum
District 7 legislators, Senator Ryan Taylor and Representatives Arlo Schmidt and Jon Nelson addressed a number of issues at the legislative forum in Velva last Saturday morning.
The first topic of discussion was funding and implementation of snow removal, an issue common across the state during this hard winter.
Local constituents were also interested in the impact of federal stimulus funds on the local economy. Velva Mayor Cindy Shattuck quizzed the trio about the possibility of communities receiving money for infrastructure.
