Board members struggle with spending decision
Only the future will determine whether a Crow Wing County Board spending decision Tuesday was the right one.
The board was faced with the option of a price savings of $92,700 on radios it knows it has to buy soon. But commissioners struggled with a short window in order to make a decision and whether there may not be better deals if they wait until next year.
In the end, the board voted 3-2 against moving forward with the purchase.
