Breezy Point: Council buys three tax-forfeited lots

City will use parcels to expand disc golf course


In its Monday, Aug. 3, meeting, the Breezy Point City Council agreed to purchase three parcels of land totaling $13,465.57. The land was for sale in Crow Wing County’s July 24 auction.

The city intends to use the parcels to expand the disc golf course.
