A new law, the Minnesota Radon Awareness Act, goes into effect this January. The law will require detailed radon testing during home inspections before the home can be sold.
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month and Stearns County wants to inform the public on the preventative measures against the dangerous gas.
State Representative Paul Anderson will be hosting the town hall meetings.
The public meetings will begin November 21 in Glenwood. Melrose and Sauk Centre will also have meetings on November 26.
Stearns County is identified as having relatively high levels of radon because of the large amount of granite.
Testing for radon is important because the gas is odorless, colorless and tasteless. 21,000 deaths a year in the U.S. are attributed to lung cancer caused by radon gas.

The rumors of approaching snow have been heavy these last couple days, but according to SCSU Meteorology Professor Bob Weisman, the bulk of it is staying south of the St. Cloud area.
Two to five inches is projected to hit the Twin Cities.
St. Cloud is far enough north to miss the bulk of the projected snow. Weisman is forecasting a dusting of wet snow with totals up too an inch in St. Cloud.
Weisman says the snow accumulation isn’t the problem associated with this batch of winter weather, it’s the expected timing of the snowfall. The bulk of the wet snow is forecasted to fall during evening rush hour tonight. So St. Cloud commuters traveling to or from Minneapolis may experience some wet and possibly slippery road conditions.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - Fifteen years after it opened, the popular Lake Wobegon Regional Trail in central Minnesota is showing signs of age.
The St. Cloud Times reported Friday that local officials are searching for ways to pay for fixes. They're considering user fees and also have their eyes on the state's Legacy Fund. That account contains set-aside sales tax dollars from a voter-approved tax increase five years ago.
Cliff Borgerding, who is president of the Lake Wobegon Trails Association, acknowledges that projects for new trails present stiff competition compared with repair and maintenance.
The Lake Wobegon trail draws hundreds of thousands of bicyclists, walkers, snowmobilers and in-line skaters every year.
Minnesota's state trail system contained 560 miles of paved trails as of 2012. That's up from 475 miles five years before.
