Wadena County Commissioners: Tax levy and cartway rehashed, among other business

by Trinity Gruenberg

The Wadena County Commissioners held their regular meeting on November 15.

Budget Discussion

The preliminary tax levy is at 10.37 percent.

Their interest in investments took a jump. Heather Olson, auditor/treasurer, invested $3 million to come out to over $4 million in a nine-month period.

Right now, they are sitting at a 7.07 increase, which is down from the end of September.

The Humane Society is asking for nearly a 30 percent increase from the county, and Wadena County Historical Society is asking for an increase of $1000.

The appropriations and allocations are a board discussion if they wish to cut them or increase them.

Commissioner Murlyn Kreklau said their preliminary levy is among the highest in the state and highest in the region. . .
