COUNTY STATEMENT CONCERNING THE MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION PLACEMENT OF HIGHWAY SIGNS 

For more than 100 years, it has been settled law - accepted by the County, the State, the Federal government, and even the Band itself - that the Mille Lacs Reservation was disestablished. Now that the Band has sought to re-open that question, it will be decided by the federal courts and not by the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s placement of highway signs.
