Input from Sherburne County Residents is requested
The process of updating and revising the Sherburne Local Water Management Plan has begun - and we want your input. The Sherburne Water Plan identifies existing and potential priorities for protection and management of surface and ground water resources in the county; it also develops a plan of action to address those priorities.

Opportunity for Public Input on Child Care Plan
A draft of the 2016-2017 Sherburne County Child Care Plan has been completed and we are seeking public comment on the plan.

The Child Care Assistance Program helps working families or families with a parent enrolled in a post-secondary school program with the cost of child care. The amount of assistance is based on the parent's income and the fee is based on a basic sliding fee scale.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services is designated by Statute as the lead state agency for the Child Care Assistance Program but counties do have limited discretion to establish some local policies and procedures.

Although the majority of the plan is prescribed, public comment is being sought on the entire plan.

Download a copy of the 2016-2017 Sherburne County Child Care Plan PDF, or request a copy by email or phone 763-765-4037 from Amanda Larson.

Comments will be accepted until 4:00 on September 11, 2015. Written comments should be submitted to Amanda Larson, HHS Planner, Sherburne County Health & Human Services, 13880 Business Center Drive Elk River, MN 55330.
