Everyone values personal time. No one wants to drive extra miles. So, Londa Witte, DNR administrative assistant in Spencer, was excited to share a phone call she received:
“Best phone call of the day. One of our farmers has an MMP due. He tells his wife she needs to get it done.” Witte, who is also a farmer’s wife, identified with her caller, saying, “This frazzled farmer's wife has a 1- year-old and doesn't want to drive to two counties with the baby. She called me for help.
“She had her PIN number. So I talked her through getting her account set up, and she filed her eMMP in less than 10 minutes--all while the baby napped.”
That’s the kind of story we want to hear!
