In the news today, we discussed that members of the Bemidji State University biology department will conduct deer spotlight surveys in the city of Bemidji Monday, Oct. 21. While this may appear like the illegal activity of “shining” deer, residents are asked not to contact law enforcement or disrupt the surveys. They’re getting accurate counts of those pesky city deer!
The state’s cold weather rule is in effect from now until April 15, 2020. Those unable to pay their bill will not face heat shut-off if they make an effort to set up a payment plan.
LiHEAP, or Low-Income Heating and Energy Assistance Program, is available as well. Beltrami and Cass county residents can apply through BiCAP.
