Baxter council agrees to close portion of street for winter event


BAXTER — A request to close a portion of Oakwood Drive for a February special event was approved Tuesday.

The request to temporarily close Oakwood Drive came from Community Action for a Feb. 2 Camp Vanasek special event. Mayor Darrel Olson questioned if the event required a road closing from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 2 saying the Shadowfest winter celebration event doesn’t appear to have a lot of exposure.
