Breezy Point: City hall reopens to public with restrictions

Public restrooms, library remain closed

Breezy Point City Hall

Breezy Point City Hall reopened to the public Monday, June 1, with a Plexiglas cover over the front desk and only one customer allowed in the building at a time.

The Breezy Point City Council received an update on the situation regarding COVID-19 in the city and Crow Wing County at its Monday, June 1, meeting.

Restrooms in the city hall building and the park will remain closed to the public, and council chambers will not be rented or used for anything other than city meetings.

Reservations are being taken for the park shelters and ball fields, but community education is not using the field for summer youth programs.

Additionally, the library is to remain closed to the public. All of these would be effective through Aug. 31.


Also June 1, the council agreed to accept the purchase of land for the right of way at the access to Antlers and the adjacent White Birch Drive, and entered a cost-sharing agreement at an estimated cost of $34,770 to the city.

“Essentially, the road exists today, but the right of way for that road does not,” council member Michael Moroni said. “This is procuring that road and land to be under city jurisdiction.”

In other action June 1, the council:

  • Agreed to officially cancel the city’s annual butterfly release event.

  • Accepted a donation of a lot from Deloris Filzen on Third Avenue, primarily for tax purposes.

  • Approved a grant proposal of $2,500 from Sourcewell for a new boat access dock at the north landing of Pelican Lake.

  • Agreed to advertise for a public works position.
