Joe Healy

After winning a seat as a first time candidate last fall Yankton County Commissioner Joe Healy sees a lot of work ahead that needs to be done to address various issues throughout the county.

Healy says roads and bridges in particular need the continued attention of county government.

While funding is always a challenge Healy says taking steps such as reducing traffic to one lane over some structures such as Fleege’s Bridge may be a potential solution.

Along with Dan Klimisch and Cherie Loest, earlier this week Healy took his oath of office as a Yankton County Commissioner.
