Crow Wing County makes unusual move Tuesday


Crow Wing County commissioners took an unusual turn Tuesday.

Near the end of the meeting, Commissioner Phil Trusty sought to reconsider an earlier motion that passed unanimously. Trusty said he didn’t have all the information when he voted.

At issue is a change in the land use map in St. Mathias Township from agriculture/forestry with a minimum of 35 acres to rural residential with a minimum of 10 acres.
