Beginning in January Band members can begin picking up their per capita checks every month at each of the Districts community centers rather than the Government Center in Mille Lacs.
The change was made to make it more convenient for Band members, said Michele Palomaki, Assistant Commissioner of Administration.
All changes must be cleared with the per capita office one week prior to the distribution date. Per capita checks that are not picked up will be mailed out on Friday following the distribution dates.
If Band members would like their per capita checks to be sent to their home districts they should call Band employees Danni Jo Harkness at 320-532-7592, Jana Sam at 320-532-7466 or Kathy Heyer at 320-532-7472.
