State aid cuts lower than expected for city, county
Wadena wasn't hit as hard by Gov. Tim Pawlenty's announcement of local government aid cuts on Tuesday as city officials expected.
"It's almost half of what we were expecting," Mayor Wayne Wolden said.
The unallotment for Wadena is $68,538 in 2009 and $158,142 in 2010. The city had anticipated cuts as high as $118,000 this year, Wolden said.
