911 address signs must be visible


With the recent heavy snows in the Brainerd Lakes area, the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office reminds residents to make sure their 911 address signs are not obstructed by snow. The Crow Wing County 911 Addressing Ordinance states that the resident or caretaker is responsible for keeping the 911 address signs clear of snow and other obstructions. Emergency services need to be able to see your address sign.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
