At its Jan. 3 meeting, the Wright County Board of Commissioners approved a three-year contract with the Delano Herald Journal as the official county newspaper. It marks the first time in 35 years that the Howard Lake Herald hasn’t been the official county paper. The official newspaper publishes minutes from county board/committee meetings, legal notices, public hearing notices and bid notices.
Some businesses and organizations subscribe to the official county newspaper to stay up to date on these official notices. The Delano and Howard Lake papers are in the same family of newspapers and the publisher has stated that anyone who subscribes to the Howard Lake Herald because it is the official county newspaper can transfer their subscription to the Delano Herald Journal by contacting their office.
