LOCAL NEWS-
The Polk County Commissioners approved a new Veterans Service Officer during their Board meeting on Tuesday.  “This is an important position for us.  As everybody probably knows, Les Goodwin passed away last July. We have gone through our hiring process and we’ve had two sets of interviews.  We’ve utilized one of the Legion Commanders here in Crookston, a representative from the VA, and staff,” said Polk County Administrator Chuck Whiting.  “Today, we proposed to appoint Kurt Ellefson as the Polk County Veterans Service Officer.  Kurt is familiar to us, as he works over at Tri-County Community Corrections and he is also working on an as needed basis as a VSO for Red Lake County, so we are excited to have him come in.”  The board approved and Ellefson will start the job on November 2.
Whiting also presented to the board the status of the 2017 budget.  “We are kind of in the final stages and the last dozen or so decisions that get made.  The board spent about 45 minutes here today talking about where they want to end up,” said Whiting.  “The target is a 3% levy and we still have about $50,000 worth of reductions to make to hit that goal.  I am confident that we will.  There are a few decisions that are still out there and some recalculating of wage numbers, and once we have those done we should be good to go here in November.”
