Ingstad said he can only reveal what the county is required to release by law, and cannot provide any details on the action involving longtime Human Services Director Nancy Nelson.

The Becker County Board will hold a closed session on the issue at its meeting Tuesday.

“People shouldn’t jump to assumptions,” Ingstad said. “Hopefully the matter can be resolved in a short time, although every matter is different.”

Nelson could not be reached for comment.
