  • Becker County Housing Moves to MMCDC – Transfer Seamless for Clients

    Effective May 1, 2015, Becker County's Housing efforts have transferred to MMCD. The transfer comes at a time that two top housing employees are retiring. The County expects to save nearly $80,000 the first year with the transfer. "I also believe that MMCDC has the experience and creativity to improve our county housing programs," said county administrator Jack Ingstad. "Saving taxpayers money and providing better community services should be the goal of every government program." "Hopefully this will be a positive stepping stone," Commissioner Barry Nelson said, adding that it's good to have a larger corporation in the management position because they can provide more services.

    Contact numbers for Becker County's housing will remain the same.
