Crosslake City Council plans budget meeting; funds recycling, holiday lights

The Crosslake City Council met Monday, Nov. 10, and set a date for its next budget meeting, where it will discuss where to find the funds to provide $800 toward city recycling and $500 to holiday lights.

The budget meeting will be held Thursday, Nov. 20, at 6 p.m. A final budget hearing will be Dec. 22.

The council voted unanimously Nov. 10 to provide $500 for holiday lights so that city buildings can participate in the Light Up the Dam Project. Patty Norgaard, chair of the Crosslake Economic Development Authority, told the council about the project.

The project began at the Crosslake Corps of Engineers dam, which has been adorned with lights for the holidays. This year, Norgaard hopes the project will expand. The $500 the council decided to put toward the project will go toward lights on both city hall and the community center.
