(BRAINERD, MN) — The city of Brainerd met for the first time in the month of February on Monday, so we spoke with Mayor Dave Badeaux to get the latest city news.

Badeaux first talked about the community development report that was heard by the council and mentioned that 2020 was “the year of fences.”

The council also heard a presentation from the Streets Department.

With 2021 still being in its early stages, the city has also been continuing its negotiations with unions; Badeaux explained the city’s approach to those negotiations and updated us on their status.

Finally, Badeaux gave an update on the city’s commissions, some of which are headed by newly appointed personnel.

We thank Mayor Badeaux for his time. Our full interview with him may be found below.
