From the St. Cloud Times:
We hope this proposal to establish a unified county in Central Minnesota will start the renewed discussion. The discussion should raise a wide variety of thoughts and ideas.
As a start, we offer three questions to be answered by all of us.
1. Will a unified county in Central Minnesota be more efficient and effective for most households?2. Will a unified county improve our business climate and help create jobs if employers only have to meet one system of standards, procedures, and regulations rather than three?
3. Will a unified county provide more accessible and consistent services for veterans, seniors, and families?
