EVELETH, Minn.— Representative Tom Rukavina, Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board (IRRRB) Chair and IRRRB Commissioner Tony Sertich have determined the special meeting of the IRRR Board will be held in St. Paul at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, May 4, 2012 in Room 300 South of the State Office Building.
“Holding the IRRR Board Meeting on the Iron Range is always my first preference,” said Sertich, “But we are on an aggressive timeline for the construction schedule on the DeCare Dental expansion of 120 jobs. Our legislative board members are obligated to be in St. Paul during the end of session negotiations. At this time, the agency can be flexible and accommodating with the meeting location. For this meeting, the timeliness outweighs the location.”
