Sherburne County officials left a meeting with U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar on Thursday, Jan. 5, at the Sherburne County Government Center in Elk River. Left to right are Klobuchar, County Board Chair Lisa Fobbe, County Commissioner Raeanne Danielowski, County Administrator Bruce Messelt and Josh Ortiz, outreach director with Klobuchar’s office.

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minnesota, visited Otsego and Elk River last week to hear more about local infrastructure and economic development priorities and to discuss federal funding recently approved for two key local projects. Otsego is getting $3.4 million for a drinking water treatment project and Sherburne County will receive $7 million to help fund construction of a proposed $48 million interchange project in Zimmerman. Klobuchar helped secure funding for both projects.

Sherburne County Board Chair Lisa Fobbe said they are “thrilled” about a new $7 million federal appropriation for the Highway 169-County Road 4 interchange in Zimmerman.
