The Barnes County Municipal Airport on the southern edge of Valley City has received the â2011 General Aviation Airport of the Yearâ award, said Tim Thorsen, president of the Airport Association of N.D.
The award was presented by the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission.
The award was presented March 6 at the Upper Midwest Aviation Symposium held in Bismarck. The award is sponsored by the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission in conjunction with the Airport Association of N.D.
This award is for excellence in maintaining safety, project management, and community awareness.
As far as roots go, Cal Schaefer is literally, and figuratively, rooted firmly in place at the North Dakota Winter Show.
âIâve had a booth right here since â73, in the same exact spot,â Schaefer said, pointing to the ground of the Main Exhibit building.
Schaefer began working at the show in 1963 doing general labor.
âI worked in the barns, wherever they needed help: cleaning, setting up all the rodeos and stage shows.â The job didnât pay very well, as Schaefer recalled, âIt was only a dollar and a quarter an hour.â
As of Wednesday, the city has received 11 applications for the open Valley City Chief of Police position.
City Administrator David Schelkopf reported that the opening was posted ten days ago, but that no local candidates have applied for the job so far. All current applicants are from out of state.
âIt looks like a couple others are talking about it locally, I just had a city officer come in and talk to me about it yesterday, so Iâm pretty certain there will be local people applying for this position,â he said. âWeâre going to have a large group of people to look at.â
The Barnes County Water Resource District Board will meet Monday, March 12, in the Barnes County Highway Department Conference Room.
The meeting will take place at 8 a.m. instead of the regular time of 9 a.m.
