meet with Governor Dayton
Slaytonís Mayor Miron Carney and Clerk/Administrator Josh Malchow met with legislators this past Wednesday as part of a Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities (CGMC) delegation. Issues concerning the City of Slayton and other cities were shared with legislators.

Following a lunch meeting with Governor Mark Dayton, the delegation met with District 22A Representative Joe Schomacker and District 22 Senator Bill Weber. Carney presented both legislators with Slaytonís key legislative issues that address Local Government Aid (LGA), property tax relief, and ending unfunded mandates.

Governor Daytonís budget proposal on LGA were the main talking points for the delegation. While Daytonís proposed LGA formula addresses a long needed overhaul of the generations old program, an alarming number of non-metro cities could be worse off than under the current formula. Slayton and its residents stand to suffer if the formula is passed into law in its current form.
