Statement from Nancy Carroll, Mayor of Park Rapids and President of the Coalition of Greater MN Cities, regarding Court order that cities must be paid during a government shutdown

“There is no doubt that cities dodged a major bullet this morning that may have crippled communities.

“It is just as important that the final budget compromise does not impose yet another round of cuts to cities that will result in higher property taxes for families and businesses and make communities less competitive for retaining and growing jobs.”
