In response to last week’s ATV Fee letter from Tim Pommier and to clarify the new permit fee, the City of Isle Golf Cart and OHV permit ordinance has been in place since it was adopted in 2000. The city ordinance fee applies to property owners in city limits only. The permit is needed for golf cart and drivers that use utility-type vehicles on our city streets, including Hwy. 47 and 27. This permit does not apply to four wheelers or any visitors, tourists or guests, although any person driving their ATV, OHV or golf carts in city limits is required to obey all state and city laws of the road. It is against the law to operate any of these types of equipment without a valid endorsement or license issued by the state. Unlawful use of these vehicles has been on the rise over the last couple of years so tougher regulation has become necessary. The permit fee covers this enforcement. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these permits, please do not hesitate to contact city hall directly. Applications and permit decals are provided by the Isle Police Department.

Support our hospital

I became ill the early morning of Memorial Day. Because it was a holiday, the signage at the doors did not seem to apply. After a few minutes wait, I was admitted to the ER. I got excellent care from the physician working. I was given medication and told to follow up with my primary care physician in a week.

Because of a previous illness, I chose to see a specialist in St. Cloud. He referred me to the U of M hospital. I saw them three times before my week was up. They suggested I keep the Onamia appointment and sent my records along with me. Dr. Hook admitted the tests results were new to her, but spend time asking questions and suggested some therapy and a one month follow-up.

As I was leaving the Onamia clinic, the U of M clinic called to suggest therapy and a one month follow-up. They will want to follow me from here and offered to collaborate with the doctors here to facilitate my care.

I have lived in Onamia for over 40 years. I have always been grateful for the medical care my family has received here. As our hospital expands again, I hope we can all come together to help them to continue to provide top notch services to all of us.
