Murray County Named "County of the Year"

Murray County Named 2014 County of the Year by Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust

ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 8, 2014—During the 2014 Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust (MCIT) Annual Membership Meeting held in St. Cloud Dec. 8, Board Chair Scott Sanders announced that Murray County is the 2014 recipient of the distinguished MCIT County of the Year Award.

Each December MCIT honors the county that has set the standard of excellence in risk management and loss control. Sanders was proud to present the award to Murray County for its outstanding commitment to risk management and loss control, its aggressive efforts to educate and inform staff on techniques to mitigate exposures and its superior assistance when claims arise.

“Murray County has earned this award because of its dedication to risk control and the active involvement of all county departments,” Sanders said.

The award winning county distinguishes itself in the areas of loss control and risk management. Criteria used to identify the recipient include risk management, loss control, customer service, property/casualty claims and workers’ compensation claims.

“We want to thank the county staff and department heads who helped us achieve County of the Year status,” stated James Jens, Vice Chairman of the Murray County Board of Commissioners.   “It was through their hard work and commitment to safety that made this award possible.”

The money stays local either going to the community group with the most money in their jar or the money stays at the museum to go towards future projects.

There are so many trees with neat ideas. You can also rent the Dinehart-Holt House for your holiday event!
