Hearing Tuesday on appointing or electing Kandiyohi County officers


WILLMAR — The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners will conduct a hearing at 10 a.m. Tuesday to take public comments on the whether the county auditor/treasurer and recorder should be appointed or elected positions.

Currently, the two offices are elected by county residents, but legislation that was signed this week by Gov. Mark Dayton gives Kandiyohi County, and four other counties, the authority to pursue appointment of the officers.
