For the first time in roughly 10 years, cities and counties are looking at a bump in local government aid instead of a decrease.

The state will be providing an extra $80 million to cities, $40 million to counties and $10 million to townships in aid.


“After a lot of years of cuts, we’re finally going to get some extra LGA. I think it will be about $90,000,” Detroit Lakes Finance Officer Pam Slifka said.
