Brainerd Town meeting planned for Sept. 8


In an effort to foster better dialogue with Brainerd residents, the city will hold its first town meeting in September. 

The brainchild of council President Mary Koep, the town meeting will be held from 6-8:30 p.m. on Sept. 8 in the Brainerd Fire Hall meeting room. 

“It’s an opportunity for people to visit informally with the council and staff, get to know them ad ask questions they wouldn’t ask otherwise,” Koep said.

I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU.
