ST. CLOUD - St. Cloud has put up the "Help Wanted" sign. The city council has approved the budget for 2015, which includes the hiring of 10 new employees.

Mayor Dave Kleis says the additional staff are needed, after years of belt-tightening...

The new hires include two police officers, three police support staff, two fire fighters, two equipment operators at the airport, and one in the Health and Inspections department.

Kleis says the interviewing process has already begun.

St. Cloud's 2015 budget is $68.6 million, which Kleis says is still less than what it was in 2008.
