Decision delayed on land use ordinance


The Crow Wing County Board voted Tuesday to delay a decision on land use ordinance revisions for two weeks. 

The board took comments from the public and met on the issue for more than three hours. At the end, the board split 3-2 on the vote with Commissioners Phil Trusty and Doug Houge voting against waiting as both said they felt they could vote on the issue Tuesday.
