EDC looking for swift end to conflicts, controversy over funding


WILLMAR — The joint powers board of the Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission sought to bring an end Thursday to controversies over the EDC’s reserve fund and allegations of conflicts of interest.

“I hope we’re done having to defend the EDC,” Denis Anderson, chairman of the joint powers board, said after a discussion that lasted for more than an hour.

The criticism has dogged the Economic Development Commission for at least three months.
