Great News about the former Grace Lake Junkyard!!!

January 26, 2018

Dear Friends

As you may have observed, the junk yard cars have been removed from 10158 North Grace Lake Road, S.E. Bemidji, Minnesota. Brent Rud, Beltrami County Director of Environmental Services assures us that the remaining clean-up of that property will begin in the spring of 2018.

Beltrami County Board of Commissioners has been responsive to our oral and written requests for help in dealing with the documented, dangerous, unsanitary, health and safety standards required by the County and Frohn Township. County Administrator, Kay Mack, our District 1 Commissioner, Keith Winger, as well as Brent Rud, his associate, Shawn Foley, and the new County Attorney, Dave Hansen, have demonstrated their commitment to resolve this long standing violation.

Brent Rud has encouraged us to continue to monitor their progress and let him know if the promised follow- up actions do not meet expectations. His telephone number is 219 333 4158.

Our thanks to Grace Lake residents, Richard Sampson, Rick Black and former Hubbard County Sheriff Frank Homer, for their assistance in this matter.

A copy of this letter has been sent to the Frohn Township Board as well as those mentioned above.


Robert Brouse and Jim Kramer,
Members,  Grace Lake Watershed Development Association

Thank you, Bob, for being so consistently supportive of the tough work we do.   I do think that we work well with our citizens and as a team, but it is always good to get this kind of encouragement. 
Have a glorious weekend! 
Kay L. Mack, Beltrami County Administrator
