Brainerd to look at possible sewer rate increase


Brainerd sewer rates could increase for the first time since 2006.

At a meeting Tuesday, the Safety and Public Works Committee agreed to recommend an increase to the Brainerd City Council.

The topic will be before the council at one of the April meetings. The council as a whole will decide to either move forward with the process or not.

It’s an effort to fund future sewer pipe replacements and rehabilitation of the aging system, city officials said.
