Fillmore County one step closer to being site of State Veteran's Cemetery


Fri, Jul 2nd, 2010
Posted in Government

Fillmore County Commissioner Chuck Amunrud appeared before the Spring Valley City Council on Monday night seeking support from the city in the establishment of a Veteran's Cemetery in Fillmore County that could be as large as 513 acres. Amunrud said that he is going to Little Falls, MN, on Tuesday to visit with State Veterans Commissioner Michael Pugliese and to explore drafts of agreements that will result in the selection of Fillmore County to service veteran's in three states.

Amunrud said that the land for the cemetery will be donated by Fillmore County and that development costs of six to eight million dollars will be provided by the state if approved. There were no questions from the Council and they moved swiftly to support the resolution for the County to donate the land.

Fillmore County is seeking the support of local units of government and veteran's groups in the County to provide such a project to veteran's families in a closer location than driving to Fort Snelling in Minneapolis. Many of the preliminary studies have been done and looked at many issues including need, suitable land, impact and support of local units of government and veteran's groups. Amunrud said they have received 20 resolutions of support so far.

The Council also approved a request from the Spring Valley Chamber to proceed with requests to permit fire works, the parade route, soapbox derby, beer license permit, insurance for serving beer, dance security plan, dance clean up plan. The annual event will be held on August 20th with fireworks kicking off at the south park.
