Willmar City Council OKs $11,000 settlement for EPA violation in connection with construction of new airport

The council Monday night voted to pay $11,000 for one violation to the Environmental Protection Agency to settle what could have a penalty of up to $90,000 for seven alleged violations connected with construction of the new airport six years ago.
