Council splits over EDC appointee


WILLMAR — Three Willmar City Council members tried but failed Monday night to defeat Mayor Frank Yanish’s appointment of Republican state legislative hopeful Linda Kacher to the Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission’s Operations Board.

A motion was made by Steve Ahmann and seconded by Tim Johnson to approve Yanish’s appointment of Kacher to the EDC Operations Board along with three other mayoral appointees to other boards.
