Compensation OK’d for all Hennepin County boards and committees

All counties, except the state’s most populous, are permitted to set reasonable allowances for expenses or per diems for members of advisory boards or committees.

Sponsored by Rep. Michael Nelson (DFL-Brooklyn Park) and Sen. Warren Limmer (R-Maple Grove), a new law gives Hennepin County that permission.

It takes effect Aug. 1, 2022.

Supporters hope the change will encourage more people and a broader cross-section of the populace to participate.

Exemptions in other statutes allow the county to compensate some advisory members, such as those serving on the library or human resources boards, and its capital budgeting task force.
