Kandiyohi County implements new utility fees to reduce financial losses at parks


WILLMAR -- A new utility fee that will be implemented next year at Kandiyohi County parks will help reduce financial losses the county incurs by operating the park system.

The fee -- which is 50 to 60 cents a day depending on the park -- will apply only to people camping for 30 or more consecutive days. Those long-term campers had never before been charged a separate fee for utilities, including electricity to operate RVs.
