Willmar may have to wait for its regular aid payment from the state


WILLMAR -- Minnesota school districts could face another financial blow from the state this spring, when some regular aid payments could be held back for two or three months.

For the Willmar School District, up to $3.5 million in state aid payments in March and April could be delayed. State law requires that the payments be made by June 20.

The Willmar School Board heard a report on the possible delay Monday from Pam Harrington, director of business and finance.
