Vox Pop - Dec. 25


Brainerd Public Utilities

So I get my bill today and read their newsletter. And what does it contain but a litany of excuses why they are raising everyone’s utility bill? It seems that it wasn’t that long ago we agreed to raise our sales tax to offset extra charges, but that wasn’t good enough for them.

Thanks for reporting Cass County news
