A veteran’s home proposed for Fillmore County received a $10.2 million boost from the state last month.
The proposed facility was part of a public works construction bill signed by Gov. Mark Dayton on May 30.
According to city administrator Joe Hoffman, the current building plan calls for a 72-bed facility on a 15-acre site on the north side of the city. With the current closest veteran’s home in the Twin Cities, Hoffman said the bluff-top build near the Preston water tower would fill a great need.
