SAFE HOUSE

Crow Wing Township has been working Region Five Development Commission and Crow Wing County Emergency Management to seek a federal grant for the construction of a safe house (storm shelter) at Crow Wing Estates.
 
If you are interested in partnering with us to work on this project, please call 218/822-3985 to let us know. If the grant is approved, the community is required to cover 25% of the project costs. This amount can be made up of monetary contributions, discounted building supplies and/or volunteer hours.


GARBAGE AND RECYCLING

PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to accept garbage or construction debris for recycling at the town hall. Also, the dumpster near the shed is not for private use. We are having a problem with someone dropping off their remodeling project waste at the town hall. This is NOT okay and will be prosecuted. We recently installed a new surveillance camera that will help us identify who is doing this, but if you know who it might be, please let us know. In the meantime, the residents of Crow Wing Township are paying for someone else's refuse.

RECYCLING

Please note that the recycling center is now closed. Please take recycling items to the Crow Wing County Landfill.


VANDALISM

We have recently had issues at the Barrows Community Park with vandalism. We have received a physical description of two of the boys involved.
 
The picnic tables have been vandalized over the summer, as well as the light on the flag pole, the pavillion, the outlet covers (all power has been turned off), light bulbs and some of the equipment has been abused. We have also had graffiti sprayed on the back of the recycling shed.
 
If you know who is responsible for any of these acts, please call 822-3985. You may give information anonymously if you prefer. Or you can report it directly to the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Dept.
 
We appreciate your help to prevent further damage and unnecessary taxpayer expense.


HORSESHOES ANYONE?

The township park has newly installed horseshoe pits at the park for league play.  If you are interested in joining a team, please call or email Connie Bachman, 218-829-7096 ~ lwbachman@yahoo.com
 
The horseshoe pits will be open to anyone when a tournament is not taking place and even then, you can probably join in.  (bring your own horseshoes)
