Renville County approves permits for two gravel pits

OLIVIA -- The Renville County Board of Commissioners approved conditional use permit requests Tuesday for two gravel mines in Brookfield Township.

Duininck Bros. Construction, Prinsburg, sought the permits for gravel pits of approximately 37 acres and 21 acres. Known as the Curt Sampson and Kuske pits, they are located adjacent to each other, except that a township road divides them.

In other business, the commissioners approved the low bid of $73,761.26 from Mathiowetz Construction for a Norfolk Township bridge replacement on 740th Avenue. The engineer's estimate was $66,682.
