Now, those dueling websites are fighting for space outside of the virtual world — on the façade of the building itself.
A banner for SaveBrainerd.org has been affixed to the front of the building for at least a year. And this week the rival ItsaNOBrainerd.com asked for its own sign on the façade, according to an article in the Daily Herald.
Village Attorney David Pardys said at the Village Board meeting Tuesday that the board doesn’t control the property rights to the building and thus can’t allow for another sign, the article states.
On March 18, residents will get to formally cast their votes in a referendum that could result in the issuance of $11.5 million in bonds—and a 21.84 percent increase in the village's tax rate—to renovate the Brainerd building.
