Proposed Kandiyohi County, Minn., budget to increase 1.5% in 2013


WILLMAR -- Flat-line budget requests from county departments, along with a decreased payroll and less-than-expected expenses at the landfill mean Kandiyohi County will spend less next year than it did in 2012 or 2011.

Expenditures in the proposed 2013 budget were pared down to $58.2 million Thursday morning when the Kandiyohi County Commissioners met for a work session.

That's less than the $59 million in expenses this year and $58.5 million in 2011.
