How do I obtain a county map?

We redid our county map in 2015.  Cost of a map is $3.00.  Please stop by our office to obtain a map.  Or, you can view our county map.

Do I live on a county road?

The County Highway Department maintains only county road system roads.  They can be identified as CSAH (County State Aid Highway) or CR (County Road).  Most likely, if your address is named anything other than "County Road (#)", you are probably on a township or state road and they maintain their own roads, respectively.

My road is dusty. How do I obtain dust control?

The County does not offer dust control to residents on the gravel roads.  There are limited companies in the area that offer dust control products.  Some possibilities to try are Chuck Larson Dust Control at 507-273-1004, Chuck's Grain & Feed at 507-875-2247 or Freeborn County Co-op at 507-373-3991.
