(BRAINERD, MN) — The city of Brainerd held its second regular council meeting for the month of July on Monday. We chatted with Mayor Dave Badeaux to get updated on how everything went.

Badeaux provided an update to the ongoing saga with the historic water tower, mentioning the presentation from the Water Tower Committee earlier this month and where things stand now.

There was also a discussion on the potential for a new park to be constructed near Brainerd High School that would contain a trail head – the Mississippi Landing Trail Head – which would connect various trails in the area.

The council also approved the conceptual framework for some changes that could be coming to the way the city does zoning in the future.

Badeaux mentioned some upcoming events in the months of August and September that were approved by the council.

We thank Mayor Badeaux for his time. The city of Brainerd will hold its next regular council meeting on August 2. Our full conversation with Badeaux may be found below.
