WILLMAR — In an attempt to help those businesses hardest hit by the shutdown, which include bars, restaurants, cafes, gyms and entertainment venues, the Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners met in a special meeting to approve allocating more of its CARES Act funding to financial relief grants for businesses. The board approved using approximately $252,000 of its CARES funds, the majority of which will go to the 48 bars, restaurants, cafes, fitness clubs, hotels and theaters in Kandiyohi County. This latest round of relief is using up most of what the county had left of its original $5.2 million CARES allocation.
