Area Counties Plan to Save Dollars

Crow Wing and Todd Counties are pairing-up to save money in human services.

Crow Wing County administrator Tim Houle says they want to achieve better customer outcomes with fewer resources.
It is a pilot project sponsored by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and funded through the Bush Foundation.

The five month study focused on how to better serve customers receiving community services, especially those receiving multiple health and human services with fewer taxpayer dollars.

Social services administrators in Crow Wing and Todd Counties say they intend to immediately implement the changes. Other changes will require legislative approval. The counties, together with the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce as well as regional chambers of commerce, will help carry this message to Minnesota legislators.
