Vote split on wages for 2011


Setting wages for 2011 divided Crow Wing County Board members Tuesday when they considered pay for department heads. 

It’s traditional to set the coming year’s wages at the board’s last meeting in December. The vote divided the board across multiple vote attempts and had two elected department heads asking if the wages set were fair in terms of gender and experience.
