BELTRAMI BOARD MEETING MORE SUBDUED

The Beltrami County Board meeting Tuesday was held under somewhat calmer conditions than it was two weeks ago when the subject of refugees came up, but it was no less passionate. BAck on January 7th, County Commissioners voted to opt out of the United States Refugee Resettlement Program. That decision set off a firestorm of events, that gathered national media attention from both sides of the issue.
