EDC announces it will curb spending for remainder of year


WILLMAR -- The Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission will watch its pennies for the rest of the year, a move that could save up to 3 percent of the agency's budgeted spending.

The measure, prompted by cutbacks undertaken by both the city and the county, was urged last month by the EDC's joint operations board.

At a meeting Thursday, the board stopped short of voting to make the cutbacks official.
