County Board defeats budget motion
The Crow Wing County’s Board defeated a motion to adopt the proposed 2012 budget and levy 3-2 Tuesday night.
The vote came after a three-and-a-half hour meeting where baseball analogies and even magic acts were used to describe proceedings that left staff frustrated and board members divided.
In September, the board adopted a proposed levy of $34,876,657 for a reduction of $845,039 or 2.37 percent.
