City's share of 371-18 project higher than anticipated


The Nisswa City Council on Wednesday, July 18, had to decide how to pay for its share of the Highway 371/County Road 18 project after the awarded bid was higher than engineers' estimates.

After the bid for the $7 million project was awarded to Anderson Brothers of Brainerd, the city's total cost, including 2013 inspections and landscaping (which weren't part of the bid), was $1,683,187, or $183,187 more than the city projected.

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.
