Yellow Medicine County tables plan that looks at merging family services with its nearby counties


GRANITE FALLS -- The Yellow Medicine County Board of Commissioners tabled a proposal Tuesday to study the possibility of joining its family services operations with those of Lincoln, Lyon and Murray counties.

The commissioners indicated they wanted to leave open the possibility of exploring this and other options in the future. But they also made it clear the county is not yet ready for the move, according to Peggy Heglund, Yellow Medicine County Family Services director.
