Lane residents vote today on dissolution

LANE — Several residents in Jerauld County’s smallest town don’t want to see its identity disappear. Lane residents will vote today on whether to dissolve the town of about 50 — a move that several think would be a mistake. Many doubt that enough support exists to disband the town.
Dan Swenson, who co-owns Swenson Brothers Grain, the town’s biggest employer with 10, said the town has a grant for a feasibility study to gauge replacing its aging sewer system. Though Swenson would like to have a say at the polls but can’t vote as a rural Woonsocket resident, he still is concerned about access to his business with snow removal.
