(Crosby, MN) — The Crosby City Council meeting from Monday night garnered the attention of the local residents, business owners, and other concerned people to discuss the City’s stance of allowing riding bicycles on the city sidewalks.

Former Crosby Mayor Bob Novak, who was unable to attend the previous meeting, voiced his opinion on the stance of public safety for those on the sidewalks.

Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Brielle Bredsten, on behalf of a resident, read a letter to the Council on the author’s displeasure for the continuing conversation.

The letter would go on to discuss the costs related to widen sidewalks, bike racks, and other related measures to ensure cooperation for bicyclists and walking patrons. Crosby Mayor Jim Hunter also took a moment to calm the tension in the room about the next steps through the process.
