The Minnesota Seasonal and Recreational Property Owners Coalition Inc., a cabin owner advocacy group, is hosting a meeting from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, July 24, at the Brainerd Public Library for cabin owners and area legislators.
The issue on the agenda is to discuss property taxes and how it impacts cabin owners.
Jeff Forester, executive director of MSRPO, said in a press release, "Legislators promised fairness in 2001, but all we've seen is double and now triple digit increases since then. The property tax system is broken and needs to be fixed."
