Sebeka Legion asks Wadena County for help
If the Sebeka Legion can't raise $22,000 in approximately 2 months, Wadena County will have to seize their building because of $85,000 in unpaid taxes.
Deb Besett, manager, and Walt Schultz, former Legion commander, appeared before commissioners at the July 26 meeting to plead with the board to reduce the amount of taxes due. But commissioners could not help.
Auditor-Treasurer Char West told commissioners, "Our hands are tied. We have to follow state statute."
