Where is Minnow Brook?
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - It looks like Rochester will soon have a new body of water.
Actually, it has always been there but it has been a stream without a name.The Olmsted County Board was recently asked by a Rochester couple to consider naming the unnamed stream and it looks like their request will be granted.
The board held a public hearing Tuesday and directed the County Attorney’s office to prepare a resolution that will be voted on at its next meeting.
The request came from Andrew and JoAnna Pruett. They want to give the name “ Minnow Brook “ to the small stream that runs near their home.It begins in Kalmar Township near County Road 3 and flows through Cascade Township where it terminates near George Gibbs School.
Andrew Pruett told the board they came up with the name because he and their young son catch and release minnows in the stream as a family activity.
Senior Assistant County Attorney Tom Canan told the board his office spent “ considerable time “ digging through Minnesota statutes because they have never dealt with such a request before.
