Brainerd City Council: Citywide cleanup still a possibility for fall 2012
Last year’s citywide cleanup in May, featuring curbside pick up, was met by the masses.
But with such an overwhelming turnout of items left to be picked up, costs of recycling, dumping at the Crow Wing County landfill and city crew labor hours totaled $70,571 — an excess of $20,104 — and has left the Brainerd City Council reluctant to spend funds on a second spring cleanup this year.
But that doesn’t rule out a potential fall cleanup.
