A letter from Jeff Hubert of the Post Office was submitted to the committee for review.

Town Lake’s city beach will receive a natural makeover in the spring as the Frazee City Council approved a natural restoration plan during its monthly meeting Monday, Nov. 13. The cost of the project was just shy of $12,000 and included a 10 percent contingency for unforeseen additional work. Half of the amount paid will be returned to the city, as Becker County Soil and Water offered a 50 percent cost share.

The City of Frazee will host a public hearing on what to do with the city-owned liquor store on Monday, Dec. 11 at 6 p.m. in the Frazee Fire Hall.

Financials for the liquor store report the business at a loss of $60,211 for the year 2017. Frazee City Administrator Denise Anderson said the city is still working on learning the accounting software, and is working hard to get the books updated and correct.

There’s a new option on the horizon for elderly housing. A family foursome will soon be opening New Horizons, an adult foster care center which could house up to 10 seniors. This new venture will be located on the shores of Wyler Lake in a rambling home on the lake’s northeastern shore. Early December is the target opening date. The home itself, presently owned by Ken and Marlys Jacobson, has been home to foster children for years. Soon, the 10,000 square foot fieldstone home will be renovated and take on an older clientele.

A decision on whether or not to accept the United Community Bank building is expected to be made at a special Frazee City Council meeting on Monday night.

While the EDA has formally accepted the building, final approval of the plan must come from the Frazee City Council.
