                            CHAPTER 394-S.F.No. 2522 
                  An act relating to Wadena county; permitting the 
                  consolidation of the offices of auditor and treasurer. 
           Section 1.  [CONSOLIDATION OF OFFICES.] 
           Upon adoption of a resolution by the Wadena county board of 
        commissioners, the offices of auditor and treasurer shall be 
        consolidated.  The title of the consolidated office shall be 
        "auditor-treasurer."  All the duties, functions, and 
        responsibilities required by law to be performed by the county 
        auditor and county treasurer shall be vested in and performed by 
        the auditor-treasurer. 
           Sec. 2.  [SCHEDULE.] 
           Persons elected at the November 1990 general election to 
        the Wadena county positions of auditor and treasurer shall serve 
        in those capacities and perform the duties, functions, and 
        responsibilities required by statute, until the completion of 
        the term of office to which each was elected, or until a vacancy 
        occurs in the office, whichever occurs earlier. 
           Sec. 3.  [REFERENDUM.] 
           The Wadena county board, after adopting a resolution 
        permitted by section 1, shall publish the resolution once each 
        week for two consecutive weeks in the official publication of 
        the county.  The resolution may be implemented without the 
        submission of the question to the voters of the county, unless 
        within 21 days after the second publication of the resolution a 
        petition requesting a referendum, signed by at least ten percent 
        of the registered voters of the county, is filed with the county 
        auditor.  If a petition is filed, the resolution may not be 
        implemented until approved by a majority of the voters voting on 
        the question at a regular or special election. 
           Sec. 4.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
           This act takes effect the day after the filing of a 
        certificate of local approval by the Wadena county board in 
        compliance with Minnesota Statutes, section 645.021, subdivision 
           Presented to the governor April 5, 1994 
           Signed by the governor April 7, 1994, 11:23 a.m.
