Crow Wing County Board Chairman Dewey Tautges put his foot down Tuesday when County Administrator Peter Herlofsky Jr. began calling the Planning and Zoning Department the Planning, Inspection, Permitting and Enforcement Department or PIPE for short.
"Call it what it is," said Tautges. "If I want a pipe I'll go to Ace Hardware."
Tautges said as a farmer he does many chores, such as tilling the land and spreading manure, but he does not use every chore as a letter to create an acronym. -- Jennifer Stockinger
