Taxpayers group wants outside assessor
The Becker County Taxpayers Association tried to get two of its resolutions through the county board Tuesday, but found little support among commissioners.

That land is considered to represent possible conflicts of interest for the freelance assessors who originally did the work, since they either belonged to relatives or to the assessors themselves.
