Kandiyohi County Commissioners to forgo raises in 2014


WILLMAR — The Kandiyohi County Commissioners opted Tuesday against giving themselves a raise for 2014.

Instead, they voted unanimously to keep their pay at the same level — $28,989.83 — next year. The county commissioners’ per diem of $70 for attending meetings also will remain the same.

Discussion was brief and quick to reach a consensus.

“I don’t have any problem keeping it where it is,” said Harlan Madsen, chairman of the County Board.
