The Pine River City Council on Tuesday, Jan. 13, made annual appointments, most of which remained the same as 2014.

The council approved Bolton and Menk as city engineers; the Pineandlakes Echo Journal and Brainerd Dispatch as the official newspapers; Pine River State Bank, US Bank, First National Bank of Walker and Lakes State Bank as official depositories; and Ted Lundrigan was again selected as city attorney.

In other action, the council:

• Approved a change in contract with Eagle Construction Company for work on the snow removal equipment building at the Pine River Municipal Airport. The building design was altered because of plumbing issues.
