Becker County, Detroit Lakers brace for big state cuts
As a not-a-very-merry Christmas present, the state has handed Becker County a $300,000 cut in state aid for this year.
That's a 21 percent cut, but -- adding insult to injury -- the state is calling it a 1.7 percent cut.
"That's so deceitful," said Becker County Administrator Brian Berg. "They are counting our own county levy and everything else to come up with that."
