Checking out their future home

Members of the Forest Lake City Council and Economic Development Authority got their first look inside the Forest Lake City Center Monday evening. Project Manager Brian Hook of Kraus-Anderson, City Administrator Aaron Parrish, Police Chief Rick Peterson and Fire Chief Gary Sigfrinius showed the construction progress of the building that will house the city’s administration and fire and police departments starting this fall. Fittingly, it rained as the tour participants found their way inside the construction site. Precipitation has been an obstacle for crews all spring and summer.

    Even in this condition the unfinished city center looks better than the neighboring junkyard which is doing business under the alias of a supply business
