For residents interested in purchasing a swing away mailbox post, Hilltop Lumber in Ottertail has them.


Please do not store anything in the road right-of-way. Public safety for all drivers, including snowplow drivers is critical. Property that is too close to the roadway interferes in plowing snow and is a potential hazard if a vehicle leaves the road. Items in the right-of-way are in violation and at risk of being damaged by snow. The priority is to clear the roads for the safety of all drivers.


Also, please remember that it is illegal (MN Statute 169.42) to push or blow snow into the road or pile it along the right-of-way.

Weed Control

Ben Bucholz is the Supervisor in charge of Weed Control.  Please call him if you have noxious weeds on your property.  Edna Township will take care of weed control in the township road right-of-ways but we need your help identifying the places that have noxious weeds.

Edna Township will use chemical control (spraying) to control weeds.  If you wish to opt out of the township spraying weeds on your property please be sure to get this form to Ben as soon as possible.
