(Deerwood, MN) — The Deerwood City Council approved projects for sewer line improvements and reviewed personnel matters during their August 2nd meeting from the Deerwood Auditorium.

Chad Katzenberger spoke before the Council on the current status of the City’s Infrastructure and Water Tower Projects.

Mayor Michael Aulie also spoke of a recent letter received from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources concerning Municipalities’ use of water during the current state of drought.

The City of Deerwood has no current plans of changing the use of conserving or restricting water usage by residents. Approval was also given for Public Works to begin jetting 11,000 feet of City sewer lines at a cost of $6,700. 

Deerwood Police Chief Mark Taylor, during his Department Report, spoke to the Council on the unfortunate resignations of two part-time officers.

Chief Taylor did report that Mayor Aulie and himself will be meeting with Crow Wing County Sheriff Scott Goddard on August 18th, with the talks from that meeting lifting the ban against Deerwood Police officers entering Crow Wing County Buildings.
