County gets final bill for recent landfill fire and it's not pretty


A fire last month at Kandiyohi County's landfill that spanned 10 days cost more than $100,000 to put out. The county will have 30 days to pay the $103,058 bill to the city of New London.

"It's kind of where our guestimate was at," County Administrator Larry Kleindl said. "Would I like it to be smaller? Yes. But it is what it is."

The county received the final bill Monday.
