Town meeting covers the gamut


From discussing the College Drive project to sidewalks to the shared services between Brainerd and Baxter, the topics were varied Thursday at the BrainerdCity Council’s town meeting at the Brainerd Fire Department.

In a more relaxed, informal gathering, about 40 people, mainly Brainerd City Council members and staff, socialized during the first hour of the meeting, eating ice cream and other goodies, all donated by Brainerd area businesses.
