In its Monday, Feb. 7, meeting, the Breezy Point City Council unanimously agreed to enter an agreement with DeChantal Excavating LLC to demolish structures deemed hazardous on Terminal Road.

The city received two bids, with DeChantal’s low bid coming in at $7,681, which will then be assessed to the property owner.

The council also agreed to hire DeChantal Excavating for tree removal at the disc golf course for $3,500.

Additionally, during the meeting, Mayor Todd Roggenkamp told the council that, as of Jan. 10, the city is debt-free.

In other action, the council:


  • Agreed to move to an “open book” meeting format for the Local Board of Review and Equalization, provided the council can reassess this format within two years of implementing it.
  • Approved a police service contract with Pelican Township for 20 hours of service per week. Police Chief Brian Sandell said the agreement has been in place for more than 20 years.

In January, the Breezy Point Police Department responded to 198 incidents, an increase of 36 from January 2021. Among the incidents were seven crashes, two traffic arrests, two thefts and a fire.
