Pequot Lakes City Council adopts updated comprehensive plan


About three years after work began to update the city’s comprehensive plan, the Pequot Lakes City Council adopted that plan Tuesday, Feb. 5.

Council member Jerry Akerson cast the sole dissenting vote. The plan required four of five council members’ votes to be adopted.

That requirement blocked the plan’s passage in December 2011, when Akerson and former council member Tom Ryan voted against adoption.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
