Community meeting works toward a better Brainerd


What do you want to see in the Brainerd community and how do the citizens and Brainerd City Council make that happen?

That and other questions were posed Tuesday evening at the The Center, formerly the Brainerd Lakes Area Senior Activity Center, in the first of monthly community meetings organized by council member-elect Chip Borkenhagen. Fellow council member-elect Gary Scheeler also was in attendance.
