The Crosslake City Council Council approved a resolution for the issuance and sale of $3,815,000 General Obligation Capital Improvement Plan Bonds at their regular monthly meeting held Monday, August 12, 2019.

These funds are designated for the new City Hall and Police Station to be located and Fire Hall remodeling project.

Jason Murray of David Drown and Associates told council they received a total of six bids, and the lowest bid received was from Robert W. Baird & Company. Their bid had an interest rate of 1.9304 percent.

Murray told council that there were several factors involved and singled out the city’s AA+ rating, which compares to  similar strong bond ratings in the Twin Cities metro area. This rating saved the city an estimated $300,000 in interest according to Murray.

Camp Knutson’s 33rd Annual Quilt Auction

The 33rd Annual Camp Knutson Quilt Auction was held on Saturday, August 10th. It was a beautiful day and a record number of quilts were auctioned off. 380 gorgeous quilts, many of which were from local quilters, were auctioned off to a record number of 230 bidders with a total of 400+ guests throughout the day. New this year, all silent auction items had a “buy it now” option so people were able to walk away with a quilt at any time throughout the morning. The 2019 quilt auction raised a total $63,500 to help with camp’s operation costs and camper scholarships.

Camp K thanks all the quilt donors, the Paul Bunyan Auxiliary Volunteers, the Quilt Auction committee leaders, and our generous buyers and supporters. The Paul Bunyan Auxiliary began in 1987 and one of their primary focuses over the years has been developing and putting together the Quilt Auction for Camp Knutson.
