(BAXTER, MN) — To hear the latest from the council meeting for the city of Baxter this week, we spoke with Mayor Darrel Olson, who updated us on the most recent news for the city.

Olson said the meeting was relatively routine, but provided some important planning and zoning updates. One was the approval of expansion for the Menard’s on Dellwood Drive.

The city also approved the sale of a property near the Target in Baxter, which is slated to be repurposed in order to become a Blaze Pizza restaurant.

Finally, Olson mentioned an agreement between the city of Baxter and Crow Wing County to get started on improving Woida Road.

We thank Mayor Olson for his time. The city of Baxter will hold its next regular council meeting on February 2. Our full interview with Olson can be found below.
