WILLMAR — Rollie Nissen has been selected to chair the Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners for 2018.

The County Board chose him as chairman during the annual reorganization meeting Tuesday.

Nissen, who represents the Third Commissioner District, has been a commissioner for three years. He served this past year as chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee.

Harlan Madsen was named vice chairman. Madsen is the board's senior member and has represented the Fifth District since 1995.

The West Central Tribune was the successful bidder for designation as the official county publication for legal notices. The Lakes Area Review was named the secondary publication for the annual county financial statement.

The County Commissioners also approved appointments to boards, committees and task forces ranging from the Planning Commission and the Board of Adjustment to the Extension Committee.

The list has one new addition this year: the Kandiyohi County Drug-Free Communities Coalition, which will now officially have participation by a County Commissioner.
