Contact: Rice County Administrator, Sara Folsted  (507)-332-6100  email:

Rice County Government Services Building remains closed to the public until further notice. Public meetings scheduled to be conducted in the County Commissioner Board Room will be held via telephone or other electronic means (per Minn. Stat. §13D.021). The public participation process for those meetings will be outlined in the individual meeting notice. In order to provide public access to posted meeting notifications, we have temporarily relocated those postings to the glass doors on the south entrance of the Government Services Building located at 320 NW 3rd ST, Faribault , MN. Postings for employment opportunities can be found there as well. Notices of Public Meetings and Employment Opportunities can also be found on our website listed below.

We have also added a second exterior document drop box location. Drop boxes are now located at both the north and south Government Services Building entrances. Staff will be collecting items from the boxes multiple times per day. 

Further Information: Rice County will continue to provide updated information as it becomes available. More information about changes to our services can be found on our website
