(Aitkin, MN) — The Aitkin City Council heard the 2022 Assessment summary on properties and will be looking into setting a time to speak with developers for housing during their regular council meeting from Monday May 16th.

The Council did approve items including resolutions for the MnDOT Collaborative Work Agreement, Long Lake Conservation Center fundraiser, Lakes & Woods Garden Club Plant Sale, and the Twomey Park Shelter.

Aitkin County Assessor Mike Dangers presented to the Council on the background of the 2022 Assessment Summary.

Those increases in property valuations have been results of the current market among other factors, according to Dangers.

Later in the meeting, City Administrator Mike Skrbich explained his thinking in looking into other offerings concerning the City’s CDs.

The Council did approve letting Skribch begin the process of looking into other beneficial financial opportunities. During the Public Comment Period, Stan Gustasson spoke to the Council on setting a Work Session to speak with developers on an affordable housing project.

The Aitkin City Council also accepted the resignation of Police officer Robert Kniefel at the meeting. The Council is next scheduled to meet on June 6th at 6p from the Community Room of the Aitkin Public Library.
