Brainerd City Council: Council agrees to steep increase in Mill Ave. Park lease

Brainerd Dispatch - 01-16


With an agreement reached, the ice rinks and ball fields at Mill Avenue Park in northeast Brainerd will stay right where they are for another two years. The Brainerd City Council approved a lease agreement with Brainerd Industrial Center owner Mike Higgins—who owns the park—during a special meeting Tuesday, Jan. 15. The city will pay $10,000 per year for the next two years to lease the park facilities and the parking lot at Memorial Park—also owned by Higgins—per the new agreement, which runs from Jan. 21, 2019, through March 1, 2021, ending after the city's pond hockey league finishes its season.
