The Beltrami County Board of Commissioners will consider a resolution during the regular meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 5, to correct the watershed maps for each district. The County Board will meet in the County Administration Building, 701 Minnesota Ave. N.W.

The affected land would be withdrawn from the Red Lake Watershed District and included in the Mississippi River Watershed District in Beltrami County and Itasca County. The change would more closely conform to the actual watershed drainage divide.

The County Board will also consider the 2012-2016 Capital Improvement Plan. The categories of the plan include:

E Transportation - road surfaces, road deficiencies, bridge deficiencies, multi-year road/bridge plan and annual improvement projects.

E Facilities - courthouse, Law Enforcement Center, Community Services Center, jail, County Administration Building, highway garage and Judicial Center.

E Equipment.

E Parks and recreation - Rognlien, Pine Tree, Three Island, Movil Maze, Shooting Sports, Motorized Trail Park, public access sites and primitive campsites.
