County, seeing the value in the work produced, picks up much larger tab for its sentence to serve program
WILLMAR -- A popular corrections program that puts offenders to work on community cleanup projects is going to cost Kandiyohi County more money to operate.
Last month the state cut funding for the sentence to service program in half. As a result, some counties are eliminating their programs.
Kandiyohi County will continue its program, is expected to take over the program for Big Stone County and is discussing similar agreements with other counties.
