Marshall County Council Appoints Member to Koontz Lake Regional Sewer District

The Marshall County Council approved an appointment to the Koontz Lake Regional Sewer District Board, but it was not easy to find a candidate.

Auditor Penny Lukenbill explained that the Koontz Lake Sewer District board members were attempting to find a Marshall County representative but potential candidates couldn’t regularly attend meetings and the other people the members talked to weren’t interested in serving on the board.

A candidate was found, but he does not reside in the Marshall County area. According to law, the appointee does not necessarily have to be a Marshall County resident, but must live within the Koontz Lake district.

With that, the council approved the appointment of Ronald Armstead to the Koontz Lake Regional District Board.
