(BAXTER, MN) — The city of Baxter held its first council meeting for the month of March on Tuesday, so we spoke with Mayor Darrel Olson to get caught up.

Olson said the meeting was fairly routine in general, but that there continues to be thorough discussion regarding continuing improvements with College Road; it is a road with high traffic, so rigorous preparation is necessary.

The city also discussed some issues that are ongoing with one of its water treatment plants, which it shares with the city of Brainerd. The city discussed making some upgrades to account for increased demand relative to when it was built.

We thank Mayor Olson for his time. The city of Baxter will hold its next regular meeting on March 16. Our full interview with Olson may be found below.
