Brown County 4H Contract Renewed 25 Sep 13

The Brown County Board approved the annual agreement with the University of Minnesota on Tuesday for Extension programs locally. The contract provides for a three-quarters time 4H program coordinator for Brown County at a cost of $49,900. Regional Extension Director Nathan Crane says the position involves a lot of work. The 2014 agreement with the Extension service calls for a 1.5% cost increase for the 4H coordinator, which Crane says will continue to be Alisa Mangen of Sleepy Eye. The Extension agreement also provides for a 16-hour per-week support staff position, which will also see a 1.5% increase in 2014. The Memorandum of Agreement was unanimously approved by the Brown County Board.
