I read with surprise the letter from the Kandiyohi County Commissioners begging the state of Minnesota for more transportation funding.

Seems like they forgot that they spent millions on the Willmar WYE project that was not really needed. The two WYE railroad overpasses that cost the county and state taxpayers how much money?

It will be nice but what the county needs are county commissioners that can live with the transportation money they have.
