Letter: County provides clarification

After reading Linda Kacher’s letter to the editor in the West Central Tribune on Sept. 14, I believe it is important to provide clarification on the Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners’ position.

The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners is not endorsing Mayor Frank Yanish’s Option C, or the so-called white paper. In addition, we are certainly not endorsing the county taking over the human resource functions of the city of Willmar.

We are supporting a formal, organized and thorough discussion of how all of our respected local government units can better cooperate to provide the best value for the taxpayers.

We look forward to the process of evaluating all our systems and structures in our local government units and not just accepting the status quo.
