EDC in Willmar, Minn., to start over with search for ag specialist


WILLMAR — The Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission is starting over in its search for a new agriculture and renewable energy specialist — but this time the position will be advertised as full time instead of part time.

Agency officials said they hope a full-time position will attract a strong slate of candidates.

Members of the Economic Development Commission’s operating board were updated Thursday on the lack of progress in hiring someone.
