It's back to Square 1 in the search for a new Becker County administrator.

The County Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 Tuesday not to hire either of the two finalists for the job and to re-advertise the position.


That was bad news for Becker County Auditor-Treasurer Ryan Tangen, one of the finalists. The other was Ron Moorse, city administrator for Afton, Minn., which is located east of the Twin Cities and is home to nearly 2,900 people.
