Wilkening to check with state on possibility for assistance with proposed project
WORTHINGTON — In one of the briefest meetings in recent months, Nobles County commissioners on Tuesday had a short list of agenda items to work through, primarily approving contract renewals and paying for ongoing maintenance upgrades.
$215,000 cost would be covered by reserves
WORTHINGTON — After several years of discussion and numerous requests from emergency responders, Nobles County Commissioners on Tuesday voted to fund rural signage for individual E911 addresses, if there is a consensus among the 20 townships to support the project.
New county shop building, expanded PJC garage move forward
WORTHINGTON — With three new commissioners sworn into office during Tuesday’s Nobles County board meeting, there were simply too many questions and not enough answers for them to approve a proposed $13 million capital improvement plan that would include construction of a new Worthington branch of the Nobles County Library.
New commissioners also to be sworn in this morning
WORTHINGTON — When three Nobles County commissioners are sworn into office this morning, one of the first things on their agenda will be to hear public testimony from Friends of the Library chairwoman Gretchen O’Donnell and Library Board chairwoman Jean Meester about the importance of a new county library building project in Worthington.
There’s no changing the fact that Nobles County commissioners, by a 3-2 vote, opted Thursday night to a table a decision on bonding for capital improvement projects, including a long-discussed new county library building.
There will be significant changes to the Nobles County Board of Commissioners in a few weeks, but it will be interesting to see what the current commission does in the wake of a public hearing set for this evening.
Hearing to be hosted Tuesday evening in Worthington
WORTHINGTON — Nobles County commissioners will host a public hearing at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Farmer’s Room of the Nobles County Government Center to discuss issuing up to $13 million in capital improvement bonds to fund projects including a new county library in Worthington.
Our current Nobles County commissioners are working hard and fast to push through a $13 million bond issue. With the county’s AA bond rating, we will probably be paying 5 percent interest on that borrowed money over the next 30 years.

I would like to endorse Matt Widboom in the upcoming election.
Matt has shown himself to be a strong leader in our community, giving of his time and energy to many projects while maintaining a busy schedule.
Editor’s note: With Election Day on the horizon, the Daily Globe requested that each of the 10 Nobles County Board of Commissioners candidates tell voters why they believe they should be elected to the county board. We asked that they submit a short essay of 200 words or less on why they should be elected and what they hope to accomplish. The following are their responses.
