June 6: Kandiyohi County approves tax abatement for Lakeland Hotel project in downtown Willmar, Minn.

Email

WILLMAR -- The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a 15-year tax abatement Tuesday that could help make the redevelopment of Willmar's downtown historic Lakeland Hotel financially feasible. The county action follows a 4-3 vote Monday night by the Willmar City Council -- at the end of a nearly two-hour debate -- to approve the same 15-year abatement request.

By contrast, the county's public hearing lasted about 15 minutes.
