The Wadena County Commissioners held their regular meeting on October 1 at the Wadena County Courthouse. 

Internet at the 

Transfer Station

Dave Hotchkiss, IT director,  discussed Internet for the transfer station. The current Internet does not work well and the staff has issues using it to do their work and resort to using their cell phones to look up information. 

West Central Telephone Association (WCTA) proposed to bury fiber lines that would cost $32,000 and asked the county to pay for $10,000. The monthly bill would be $99.45 for a 100mb Internet connection and one telephone line. WCTA would be okay with the $10,000 coming out of two separate budget years.
