Letter To The Editor The following letter was received from former state representative Frank L. Sarazin and gives the community a good outlook on Highway 60 from here to Zumbro Falls; December 31st was the last day of my term as your State Representative and some of my dreams have come true. Not only my dreams but my tireless efforts have been accomplished.
Today, O.L. Kipp, assistant Highway Commissioner, announced that Wabasha County Highways were to get the improvements that I asked so many times for. I feel contented and happy that my work at St. Paul was not futile. Highway 60 from Zumbro Falls to Mazeppa with 7.1 miles will be graded at an estimated cost of $150,000 and two bridges at an estimated cost of $100,000 will be erected. Highway 247 from Plainview to Highway 63, a distance of 12.6 miles will be graded ant an estimated cost of $265,000. Pretty nice start for a one-term-er! Frank L. Sarzin
