New Minn. licensing requirements could mean shortage of assessors


WILLMAR — Kandiyohi County Assessor Tim Falkum will submit his letter of resignation Tuesday to the County Board.

His last day is Oct. 30.

Falkum is leaving his post to retire, but he worries there will be a future shortage of assessors in counties and cities in Minnesota as a new — more stringent — licensing requirement takes effect next year.
