Lutsen prepared for activities in renovated fire hall
There were a few finishing touches to be done on the newly
renovated Lutsen Town Hall, so Lutsen supervisors convened the
Tuesday, January 15, 2013 meeting one last time in town’s old meeting
space. Along with usual monthly business, the town board talked about
parking and considered rental prices and policies for the new town
It was noted that with more space for people, more space for vehicles
is needed. Treasurer John Groth said a citizen had asked if the ball
field fence could be removed and parking extended to the east. The
cost to extend the parking lot would be $21,000 for an area 80’x90.’
To add an additional space of 24’x50’ for overflow would be $27,000.
It was agreed to discuss this at the upcoming annual meeting, on March
Supervisor Ginny Storlie shared a draft rental policy, but said she
had heard from current users of the hall, asking if their rate could
stay the same. The board agreed to give the group that currently meets
at the hall the same rate for a year, to be reconsidered after that.
Otherwise, the town board is considering charging $50 for a group of
25-50 people or $100 for 51- 100 people.
The next town meeting will be held in the newly expanded town hall
space on February 19 at 7 p.m. Prior to the regular monthly meeting,
the town board will hold its annual board of audit at 5:30 p.m. and
then a budget meeting at 6 p.m.
