At Tuesday’s meeting of the Morris City Council, City Manager Blaine Hill offered praise for all the first responders who dealt with the recent bomb threat situation at the Morris Area Schools.
“A lot of times we don’t realize that when things like that happen, there has to be people that know what to do,” said Hill. “It was very obvious sitting at the table listening to all the things that happened that they’re very happy with the reaction from the Police Department and then obviously everybody else that got involved with it. It’s never a good situation to be involved with, but we’re lucky to have a really good group of people that are trained.”
He singled out the work of the Morris Police and Fire Departments, as well as the University of Minnesota Morris Campus Police and Stevens County Sheriff’s Office for their “outstanding job.”
