Wadena approves library agreement
The Wadena City Council approved the new Kitchigami Regional Library System Joint Powers Agreement with a 4-1 vote after sections allowing citizen representatives for counties and cities were added.
Councilman Don Niles voted against the agreement saying a stipulation not allowing alternates for the citizen representatives on the board creates "second class citizens." Elected officials on the board, such as county commissioners, can send an alternate to vote on library issues.
