DHS commissioner will be asked to rescind Nokay Lake group home opening

Email

A Minnesota Department of Human Services official who originally described a group home scheduled to open soon in Nokay Lake Township as a “done deal” said Tuesday he would ask Commissioner Lucinda Jesson to rescind the decision.

Roger A. Deneen, director of Minnesota State Operated Community Services, said that had he known there was a day care near the group home site at 20124 Pickeral Lake Road he would have moved on to a different site.
