St. Cloud Airport Receives Upgrades

At Mondays meeting the St. Cloud City Council approved a service agreement with Wisconsin Based Mead and Hunt to begin design improvements at St. Cloud Regional Airport.

Mead and Hunt will design and expand hangers as well as bringing the runway taxi lane up to Federal Aviation Administration standards.

Airport Director Bill Towle says he is confident that construction will begin once a grant to MnDOT is approved. Design services will cost $471,000 with the city responsible for five percent or about $23,000.

The airport is looking to add to the 60 hangers on site, and would like to rent and lease the spaces to corporations. Construction is expected to begin by November 2019.

New Chief Deputy Named in Stearns County Sherrif's Department

Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson recently appointed a veteran officer to the rank of Chief Deputy.

Jon Lentz was promoted to that role last week. Lentz started as a Correctional Officer with the Sheriff’s Office in 1991. He was made a Deputy Sheriff in 1997, promoted to Sergeant in 2003, to Lieutenant in 2007, and to Captain last year.

Gudmundson says as Captain, Lentz was in charge of the Patrol and Investigation Divisions. The Sheriff says he has lots of  things to accomplish in his 19-month term as interim Sheriff and it made sense to promote an inside candidate who knows the issues, personalities and the citizens of the county to be the next Chief Deputy.

Lentz holds a Bachelor's of Arts in Criminal Justice from St. Cloud State University.

Gov. Mark Dayton St Cloud Discusses Higher Education and Legislative Session at SCSU

Governor Mark Dayton spoke at the Administrative Services Building on the campus of St. Cloud State University Tuesday at a press conference.

The Governor discussed the budget and bonding bills recently passed by the station legislature and the importance of higher education.

News Director Will Heyer asked, noting the governor is not seeking re-election, what Dayton's successor can do to build upon the foundation of financial support for higher education.  Dayton says the state's funding is not sufficient and raising tuition cannot be the only answer. His successor needs to work on behalf of students.

Dayton also spoke on the generational compact and how cooperation between generations is key for higher education support. He outlined if you support education to help train a smarter workforce, that workforce in turn will help the economy and contribute to the current working generation's quality of life and future retirement. He says that compact in society has been lost in recent years.

Tune in Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. for the entire news conference as our Newswatch feature.
