Willmar, Minn., mayor says he intends to downsize city government


WILLMAR -- Mayor Frank Yanish said he intends to help downsize city government. He announced his intention in keeping with his administration's commitment to transparency, he said.

"I emphasize the word help because the mayor cannot do it alone,'' Yanish said Monday in comments before the City Council's Finance Committee discussed and approved an amended 2012 city budget of $31,706,422 and the 2012 property tax levy of $3,992,734.
