SCSU Student Government Elections To Start Monday Nov. 24

Due to technical issues with the online ballots, the St. Cloud State University Student Government Elections and Referendum voting will take place this week instead of last week.

The elections taking place from today through Wednesday, November 26 will ask students two questions to help with the allocation of student fees during the budgeting process for fiscal year 2016. The two questions include asking students to identify the importance of various student services on campus and the amount students use them.

Voting will take place either online or in person at the Atwood Memorial Center. In addition, there will be a survey opportunity for SCSU students to provide feedback on campus services and programs through the end of the month.

St. Cloud (AP)--Some officials in the St. Cloud area say a declining number of licensed foster homes sometimes forces them to seek more expensive care for children.

Both Benton and Stearns counties have reported significant declines over the past few years. A Benton County social worker says the number of licensed foster homes in the county has declined from 21 to 12 in about four years. She says foster care costs for the county have more than doubled in the same period, from about $250,000 in 2010 to over $536,000 so far this year.

The St. Cloud Times reports one of the reasons there are fewer licensed foster homes is because both parents work, making it difficult for the family to take in a young child.
