Community Action closure a loss for the area

Email News Alerts

May is Community Action Month, a time to focus on poverty in Minnesota and honor those devoted to helping the state's working poor.

What an unfortunate irony it is for us here in East Otter Tail County, then, that the closure of the Community Action office in New York Mills was announced this month.


By next fall, as many as 70 employees will have been laid off, and just one Community Action representative will remain in NY Mills.
