WADENA -- Five Wadena County employees have accepted an early retirement incentive plan designed to save the county money by replacing higher wage long-term employees with employees on a lower step.


The departments will have to replace the positions with at least a 25 percent savings to the county. Discussion about the savings for replacing the specific positions has already begun at the county board level.
