ST. JOSEPH – In the final run-up to the election, the mayors of 6 metro area cities – along with administrators and city council members – gathered at the St. Joseph Fire Hall on Tuesday night to review the biggest governmental priorities for our area.

St. Joseph Mayor Rick Schultz says the purpose of the St. Cloud Area Joint Cities meeting is to strategize on 19 identified key issues and proposals impacting central Minnesota – most notably the idea to hire a lobbyist to assist with extending the local option sales tax.
