Brainerd City Council: Fall cleanup to use voucher system


Brainerd is taking a new approach to this year’s planned fall cleanup with the use of vouchers.

“The cleanup committee has met and came up with the goal to reduce junk from accumulating in resident’s yards, to reduce nuisance complaints and to give residents an opportunity to dispose of materials in a legal way,” said council member Bonnie Cumberland. “What we decided to take a look at to save some costs to the city is a voucher system mailed out to citizens.”
