Detroit Lakes Mayor Larry Buboltz was not present for Tuesday night's City Council meeting -- but he had a good reason.

Vice Mayor Matt Brenk, who presided over the meeting in Buboltz's absence, announced at the beginning of the proceedings that Buboltz was undergoing heart surgery early today.


Surgery had been planned because of blockages, but was done a few days earlier than planned, apparently because of concerns about aneurysms.
