BRAINERD SCHOOL BOARD: Athletic fees lowered


After failing during the June Brainerd School Board meeting, a new proposal was approved to help alleviate some of the costs in the Brainerd High School athletic fees as presented by the Brainerd Finance Committee during Monday night's board meeting.

Reading very similar to the first proposal of lowered costs, the committee's recommendation was to go from the current three-tier structure to a two-tier structure with costs lowered by $75 and $100 in some areas.
