EDC votes to stay in downtown Willmar

WILLMAR -- A downtown site was chosen Thursday as the new home for the Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission.

The new location -- in the Centre Place building on Litchfield Avenue -- was approved on a 5-1 vote by the EDC joint powers board.

"I think it's a very appropriate place," said Harlan Madsen, a Kandiyohi County Commissioner and chairman of the joint powers board.

The site also was the recommendation of the Economic Development Commission's joint operations board.
