The terms of Shuck, Madsen and Commissioner Dick Falk will be up for election this fall. As part of the commissioners' annual organizational meeting, appointments were made to a long list of committees and bids were awarded to the West Central Tribune and Raymond-Prinsburg News for printing official county information. The commissioners also heard the annual report from Kandiyohi County Veteran Services Officer Steve Peterson on new programs that are being offered and services that were provided to veterans living in the county in 2005.
