More money in the fight against aquatic invasive species

Email

More money is now in the fight to keep invasive species from spreading across the lakes area but just how those dollars will be put to use is still being decided.

The Legislature allocated $4.5 million in funding through county program aid to fight aquatic invasive species as of July.

Crow Wing County expects to receive about 4.5 percent of the total, or $202,713, this year as of July 1 and $450,473 in 2015 and beyond.
