County Proceeds With Merger Plans

The first steps have been taken in a planned merger of Koochiching County's Health and Community Services departments.

Nancy Lee has been hired as the public health supervisor while new job descriptions for the department's top positions have been written up.

Director Terry Murray says they'll begin next week looking at the overall structure.

The County had been considering such a merger as far back as 2008.
