After 30-plus year under the direction of Mayor Larry Buboltz, the city of Detroit Lakes will see a new leader when Matt Brenk takes over as mayor after the first of the year.


Brenk, who has served as an alderman and vice mayor for 18 years, Bob Renney and Jim Vareberg were compet-ing for the open seat after Buboltz decided not to run again.

"I'm really happy the vot-ers of Detroit Lakes sup-ported me, and I will con-tinue to work hard for DL," Brenk said.
