    gravel from the township gravel pit, then replaced what they used. He
    also reported that the new grader needs some work and he is taking
    care of it.
  4. NPAHD Report-
    a. Dr. Thomas Witt, Essentia- Sandstone administrator reported
    that the hospital is having extreme staffing shortages. They
    have 9 beds at the hospital, but can only staff 4 of them. This
    problem is not unique to Sandstone. There is a statewide and
    nationwide shortage of medical staff-not just doctors and
    nurses, but also radiologists, lab technicians, all medical fields.
    b. They hope to have the new Essentia Hospital in Duluth open in
    the spring of 2023.

    Community Connection Allies. This non-profit organization
    provides and delivers food twice/weekly to senior, veterans and
    low-income people in northern Pine County. Clients are asked to
    pay $7/meal if possible, but not required if they cannot afford it.
