Official disputes Willmar data in 2010 Census


WILLMAR -- City Planning and Development Services Director Bruce Peterson disputes the 2010 U.S. Census preliminary population count for the city of Willmar. The census said Willmar's population grew by 6.9 percent from 18,351 in 2000 to 19,610 in 2010.

"There is a dispute, but there is nothing we're going to pursue because it has to do with just the difficulty in conducting the census,'' Peterson said Monday.
