County hopes early retirement incentives help budget

Email

The Wadena County Board approved an early retirement incentive plan as a way for the county to deal with difficult economic times.

The goal of the plan is to replace higher wage long-term employees with employees on a lower step. Reducing hours for positions and not replacing positions are other options, said Paul Sailer, the county's human services director. With any plan, personnel costs must be reduced by a minimum of 25 percent over three years.
