This would involve a portion of CSAH I between CSAH 15, and Trunk ttighway 19, all in Lincoln County straight south of Hendricks, MN. Because the federal highway funds for the current year have not yet been passed by the legislature in Washington, D.C. and it is the de- sire of the Lincoln County Board notto impede the advancement of this project for fiscal 2004, it has become necessary to pass a reso- lution from the board indicating that an advance of money through the General State Aid Account to fund the project until such time as the Federal money becomes available. In orier for counties to obtain desirable bids on road and bridge projects it is usually advantageous to try and let these bids for con- struction and overlay as early in the preconstruction period as possible. Usually in an area beginning in late January until approximately June 1. This gives contractors the ability to look over available projects prior to the season and possibly look for Commissioners Notes by DAVID D. NORGAARD 5th District Commissioner, Lincoln County opportunities to organize projects into groups as to be more efficient for them and hopefully save coun- ties money in the process. This project has already been determined to be eligible for the expenditure of federal aid funds and is already programmed in the federally approved federal and state aid plan for 2004. All passage of this resolution does is make those same funds available to the county to bid the construction until such time as the federal funds are dis- pensed. Request for reimbursement of the federal aid share of the feder- ally eligible costs will be made af- ter funding and obligation author- ity are available. This is not an un- usual practice and is used mainly as a tool to save our county money by being able to bid the project in a timely manner. The estimated cost of the project is $1,552,227.65, of which the federal obligation on this The Tyler Rod & Gun Club would like to Cake thls oppormnlCy to THANK everyone who aLended and supported our 22nd Annual Fish Fry.

With that in mind you might want to consider using the equity in your house when you need money. Whether you want to improve your home, buy a new car, or pay off credit cards to reduce interest costs - a Home Equity Loan may be your best bet. Home mortgage interest is de- ductible in most cases.
