Brainerd to stay involved in talks of Downtown Motel's future


The city of Brainerd will continue to stay involved in the process of possibly acquiring the Downtown Motel on Sixth Street. Just what that involvement means is still up in the air.

At its meeting Monday, the Brainerd City Council heard a request from Brainerd Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) to partner to buy the Downtown Motel, at 507 S. Sixth St.

There is no money for that set aside, said city Administrator Patrick Wussow.
