The Pequot Lakes City Council on Tuesday, Jan. 6, approved a freeze run/frozen water service lines policy to be used to keep city water mains and service lines open when there is a chance of freezing. Under the policy, the city clerk will create a list of homes that have had frozen lines in the past or could in the future and will contact those people to announce the beginning and end of a freeze run. The city will provide all freeze run participants with a thermometer to check the water temperature from inside the home under provisions.
Attendance at the Crow Wing County DFL caucuses Tuesday, Feb. 4, in the Brainerd High School cafeteria may have been somewhat sparse, but those who participated believe in the process. “I’ve always belonged to the Democratic party. I believe in their goals. This is where we can get information on people running now,” said Carol Wohlers, of the Breezy Point precinct. She has attended many caucuses, and has been in the Breezy Point precinct since 1999.
