Detroit Lakes and Becker County see big cuts in state aid
Detroit Lakes lost more than $140,000 and Becker County more than $300,000 under aid cuts to cities and counties implemented by Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
To balance the state's budget, Pawlenty on Friday drained the state's budget reserve and chopped away at state payments to local governments, colleges, human services providers and state agencies.
The average Minnesotan should notice little change, the Republican said.
