Perham to see slight boost in LGA next year

Email News Alerts

Minnesota’s 2014 legislative session was a bit of a mixed bag for Perham.

The session, which wrapped up May 16, resulted in a $257,000 appropriation for repairs to the Perham Area Public Library – good news for the city, as this will cover half the estimated cost of the project.


The proposed Perham-to-Pelican Rapids recreational trail, however, did not receive any funding this session, and Local Government Aid (LGA) was increased, but only slightly.
