BRAINERD CITY COUNCIL Brainerd’s 2012 budget process begins; differences aired


Annual budget season has kicked off for the city of Brainerd. 

The Brainerd City Council on Monday held its first meeting on the 2012 proposed budget. Because it was advertised as a workshop, no action was taken by council members. 

The proposed budget was presented by staff, Council President Mary Koep and Personnel and Finance Committee Chairwoman Bonnie Cumberland. The council members worked with staff on preparing the 2012 budget.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
