There were no upsets when it came to the Detroit Lakes City Council race Tuesday, but the food and beverage tax question barely squeaked by with voters.


The food and beverage 1 percent sale tax passed with 51 percent in favor, or 1,369 votes, and 49 percent opposed, or 1,322 votes.

"I'm happy it passed," Mayor Matt Brenk said Wednesday morning, but admitted he wasn't so sure it was going to pass Tuesday night, watching results come in.
