Back to the drawing back for staffs, elected officials
WORTHINGTON — Just one month after dealing with 2008 cuts to Local Government Aid (LGA), administrators in southwest Minnesota are again feeling the pinch.
Worthington impacted by efforts to balance state’s deficit WORTHINGTON — The City of Worthington will dip into 2008 budget reserves to recoup losses suffered in a recent cut to Local Government Aid (LGA).
The City Council met in an emergency session Wednesday morning to respond to Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s Dec. 19 announcement that he would cut $110 million from Dec. 26 payments due to cities and counties in an effort to balance the state budget.
New City Administrator Craig Clark is a little bit impressed with Worthington.
WORTHINGTON - New City Administrator Craig Clark is a little bit impressed with Worthington. “I’m starting to learn what are the hot button issues and what things (the council is) currently working on and what really impresses me about Worthington, one of the reasons I chose to come here, is the attitude and sense that there’s nothing that Worthington can’t do. And that extends beyond the council to the city itself…the half cent sales tax is a remarkable indication of that,” he said.
City Council plans to complete interviews this weekend
WORTHINGTON — The three remaining candidates for the position of city administrator took part in interviews Friday, and they are expected to continue this weekend. City officials hope to have a decision made by early next week.
