The last of three town hall meetings to discuss the $11.5-million Brainerd referendum on Thursday drew more speakers in favor of the proposal, particularly younger residents, according to an article in the Libertyville Review.
The crowd of a couple hundred appeared more evenly split in their opinions than the earlier two meetings, where those objecting to the proposal dominated, the article says. While some residents spoke out against the referendum saying they were worried about rising taxes, younger residents said it was a worthy initiative that would draw people to town and showcase the downtown district.
