The Washington County attorney’s office has placed a high priority on school attendance, education and graduation for all students living in the county, Orput said. His office has a truancy program that addresses poor school attendance. Assistant County Attorney Susan Harris runs the program, along with staff from Washington County Community Services. Both agencies work in partnership with school officials from eight school districts that serve Washington County students.

Junko won a drawing of students who had taken the pledge and received a class ring donated by Jostens.

Forest Lake

Compost site cleanup begins

The City of Forest Lake’s compost site cleanup plan was recently approved by Washington County. A notice to proceed has been issued to the compost site’s operator Buberl Recycling & Compost, city officials said.

The site was closed because Buberl “has brought demolition materials into/onto the site and used them for building a base pad for their operations,” said Lowell Johnson, manager of the county’s Public Health and Environment division. “Unfortunately, the materials brought in are from a variety of known and unknown sources and were not properly processed to be used in that manner.”

Buberl will have 30 working days, which began on June 4, to complete the cleanup. Bolton and Menk, Inc., the city’s engineering firm, will track the progress. Meanwhile, the site will remain closed.

Any Forest Lake residents in need of a location to drop off compost materials can take them to SRC in Wyoming. Proof of Forest Lake residency is required to buy a $10 punch card. For additional information, contact SRC at 651-464-2321.
