Special school board meeting Tuesday

After twice tabling the matter at two school board meetings in March, the Sauk Centre school board will vote on a contract with School Administrative Specialty Services (SASS) at a special meeting on Tues., Apr. 1 at 7:15 a.m.

The contract provides superintendent services to the district, an arrangement that has been in place since 2011. At that time, Superintendent Dan Brooks resigned in the first year of his three-year contract with Sauk Centre schools and became an employee of SASS. The school receives superintendent services provided by Brooks through SASS.

Unlike salary contracts for principals, teachers and other staff, the district does not negotiate the SASS superintendent contract but simply would approve or deny it on an up-or-down vote. Further details on the contract appeared in the March 13 issue of the Sauk Centre Herald. A copy of the contract is available in the Herald office to any member of the public who requests to view it.

Water troubles in Brooten

For approximately two hours tonight, residents and businesses in the city of Brooten were without water after a water main broke in the southern end of town at around 8 p.m. As the water pushed through the soil between the water line and the street, water seeped through cracks in the black top and bubbled out. After awhile the center portion began heaving upward in places.

Just before 10 p.m., city workers and Brooten fire department members were able to get water services restored for the majority of town. A handful of residences may be without water overnight.

According to Brooten/Belgrade police officer Dayna Kluver, major work will be done on the southern-most block of Pleasant Avenue on Saturday morning when workers will have sunlight to work with.

It is unclear if the winter's deep frost line had anything to do with the break in the water line.
