(BRAINERD, MN) — The city of Brainerd held its first regular council meeting of the month of August on Monday, so we had our routine chat with Mayor Dave Badeaux to hear about how it went.

Badeaux started by discussing some major road work coming to Highway 210 in a few years, as the council has begun the process of a new construction project on one of the city’s most heavily used roadways.

On the topic of road projects, Badeaux also mentioned a presentation that was given at the meeting by Safe Route to School. The presentation gave the council an idea of what roadway construction around area schools could be looking like in the not-too-distant future.

Badeaux wrapped up by mentioning a brief conversation that the council had on the timeline for its 2022 budget, and what to expect regarding when the public will be able to provide input.

We thank Mayor Badeaux for his time. The next regular city council meeting for the city of Brainerd is scheduled for August 16. Our full conversation with Badeaux can be found below.
