Staff reports

WILLMAR -- The Kandiyohi County Commissioners are expected to discuss the pros and cons of appointing, rather than electing, certain statutory officers during their regular board meeting on Tuesday.

The board delayed the discussion last month, but will likely hear details about the process for making some positions, like auditor and recorder, appointed positions. The discussion is taking place, in part, because Auditor Sam Modderman is retiring next month, before his term expires at the end of 2014.

Other items on the agenda include discussion about county redistricting borders, county feedlot programs, the bond sale for Green Lake Sewer and a request for authorization to request proposals for long term disability insurance and life insurance quotes.

The regular board meeting begins at 10 a.m. Tuesday in the Health and Human Services Building,
