Willmar School Board discusses policy on members working for the district


WILLMAR — It’s still unclear whether the Willmar School Board will adopt a new policy on allowing board members to work for the district.

Board members at their meeting this week discussed a proposed policy that would not allow board members to work for the district but took no action. State law does allow it, as long as a board member makes less than $8,000 a year.

Board Chairman Nathan Streed recently suggested that Willmar board members no longer work for the district.
