Commissioners favor cuts that aren't so deep
With a majority of Crow Wing County commissioners expressing an interest in a smaller cut to library funding, those dollars may be restored before the final budget is adopted next week.
At issue is whether to take the allotted 10 percent cut the Legislature allowed — $56,000 — to the Kitchigami Regional Library System’s budget in 2012. Commissioners Rachel Reabe Nystrom, Phil Trusty and Doug Houge said they could support a 5 percent cut, about $28,000.
