City of Willmar

(Willmar MN-) The Willmar City Council will be holding a retreat Friday and Saturday in the second floor conference room at Bremer Bank in Willmar....

...City Administrator Ike Holland says the two main issues to be addressed will be the new local option sales tax and a new city hall...

...The public is invited to attend and observe the retreat. Holland says a special work session will be held on Monday and he hopes they can make a choice on a site for a city hall that the city council can vote on at their regular meeting January 22nd. The council seemed to deadlock last year on whether they should build a new city hall at the current site downtown or at a site on east Highway 12, across from the Willmar Conference Center. That land has since been sold and is now out of consideration but there are a handful of other sites to be considered.
