City bows out of joint public works building
Wanting to avoid a steep hike in city property taxes, the Detroit Lakes City Council opted to sacrifice more than $1 million in projected savings and bow out of a joint public works facility with Becker County.
The council voted 7-0 to notify Becker County that the city will not be pursuing a joint project. Aldermen G.L. Tucker and Dave Aune did not attend the special meeting on Thursday.
