Wadena gets $750,000, not $20 million, for community center
Legislative leaders and Gov. Tim Pawlenty today agreed to spend $70 million on disaster relief, mostly for southern Minnesota communities hit by extensive flooding last month.
Wadena's efforts to recover from a June 17 tornado also could get a piece of the appropriations, $750,000 to plan a new community center. Funds for the Wadena school district also are in the bill, agreed to in an afternoon meeting.
