District 13 - West Metro area
Last updated: 2014-03-04
CO Steve Walter (Waconia) assisted with a VIP detail at Fort Snelling State Park. Game farms were inspected for proper paper work. Fish houses were documented for possible litter left behind.
CO Tony Salzer (Osseo) patrolled Hennepin County for angling activity and Snowmobile activity. There are still many houses left out on the lakes in northern Hennepin County and all owners are encouraged to remove the houses by the deadline. There were several off trail issues with snowmobiles over the weekend and riders should be reminded to stay on trail. Going off trail can lead to the snowmobile trails being closed in Hennepin County.
CO Brent Grewe (Minnetonka) spent the week monitoring fishing and snowmobiling activity. CO Grewe also monitored fish house removal activity and answered several questions on the topic. Violations included failure to display valid snowmobile registration and other license issues.
CO Kevin Neitzke (Ft. Snelling) assisted with training at a District 11 meeting. He checked fishermen in Hennepin and Dakota counties. CO Neitzke talked to a Cub Scout den. He patrolled and worked complaints at Ft. Snelling State Park. He also checked snowmobiles in Dakota County.
