Renville County considers joining Project Lifesaver


OLIVIA -- Renville County is looking at joining Kandiyohi County among the rural Minnesota counties participating in the Project Lifesaver tracking system.

The Renville County Board of Commissioners informally agreed to form a committee with the Sheriff's Department to explore county participation.

Chief Deputy Doug Pomplun said he has heard from some parents of autistic children who had learned of the county's possible interest and are encouraging it to join.
