WALKER -- Cass County officials have set three public meetings in the next few weeks.
The highway department will present revised plans for improving Highway 71, Upper Ten Mile Lake Road, from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at the Hackensack Senior Center.

The board will meet at 7:30 a.m. Aug. 27 at the land department office in Backus to begin that tour.
During the morning, commissioners will visit County State Aid Highways 2, 25, 26, 77, 70, 18, 36, 1, 45, 5 and 11 and County Roads 114, 105 and 101 in central and southern Cass.
