The $173 which was raised will be used for the bowling program. Pictured are John Johnston, DAC director; Roy Buhl, Knights of Columbus; and Kim Porwall, Browerville special education teacher.
Work got underway on Wednesday, July 26, to replace the water mains on two blocks of East Sixth Street. From Creamery to Linden Street, old 1 1/2” galvanized pipe is being replaced with 6” plastic pipe. From Linden Street, east one block, 4” pipe that has been a problem in the winter with freezing due to being installed too shallow, will also be replaced with 6” plastic pipe. Work is scheduled to be completed this week by Moliter Excavating of St. Cloud. Tri-City Paving of Little Falls will tar the street.
