Also, another change from the Veterans Day holiday. The Brooten city council will hold a regular meeting on Tuesday, November 13 at the city hall meeting chambers at 7 p.m. This meeting was moved to November 13 due to November 12 being a federal holiday for Veterans Day. The second regular meeting of November will follow on November 26.
