Southern Minnesota County Returns $1.5 Million To State To Be Sent To Duluth For Flood Relief
Who says that there aren't good Samaritans anymore? A southern Minnesota county has voted to return $1.5 million in unused disaster relief dollars back to the state - to be redirected to Duluth for flood relief.
Houston County - located in the south-eastern tip of Minnesota - made the vote Tuesday night at their meeting. Officials said that they had used their share of the relief allotment, and wanted to send the remaining money somewhere where it could be of use.
