At its meeting Monday, the Brainerd City Council held the first reading of an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance that would lay out a more thorough process in obtaining a permit for demolition or decommission in industrial or mixed use districts.
Ultimately, it would give the city council more say and oversight in what happens during the demolition or decommission process.
A 60-year-old north Brainerd woman desperately needed help, church officials said — even though she didn’t realize it.
For years, the woman lived in conditions that were unsafe and hazardous to her health, officials with Brainerd Christian Fellowship officials said. She lived with garbage stacked up 4-feet high along the walls, as well as shared living quarters with 42 cats. The unlivable conditions got worse as the years passed to where the woman was unable to use the bathroom facilities.
