BAXTER -- Baxter will seek grants to help repair infrastructure taken out by rising water at the Northland Arboretum.
The total project cost is expected to be $514,672.
Problems at the arboretum started about five weeks ago after beavers plugged a culvert that ran between two ponds, washing out walking paths and taking out a bridge.
De-watering on several private and city projects in the city into the city's storm water system has caused the increased flows into the arboretum.
In other action, the council:
Approved the sale of $4,875,000 in improvement bonds to US Bancorp Piper Jaffray.
Approved a conditional use permit for Adele and Brad Booth, 560 Inglewood Drive North, to operate a day care.
Denied a variance to Marvin Gehrls at 100 Memorywood Drive North for a lot width of less than 100 feet on the waterfront, roadway and second tier lot width on the roadway.
