The city council hosted a meeting last week to seek input from the community on the Browerville Housing Study. They got input all right—all of it negative. According to the study, there is a need for rental housing in Browerville and the recommendation was for 8-12, one to three-bedroom units, which would rent for $400-$525 per month. Jack Dressen explained they would need a commitment from 8-10 people who would like to live in them to be in favor of the complex. When the audience was asked for their thoughts, nobody was in favor of the project.
Congratulations to the Browerville Girls Basketball All-Conference players. Coach Petermeier nominated them as Browerville’s Athletes of the Week. All conference: Stacy Gonsior, Jacqui Lamusga, and Jessie Frisch. Honorable mentions were: Elizabeth LaVoie and Melissa Spandl.
