SARTELL — The Sartell city departments went over their 2013 annual reports during tonight’s (Monday) City Council meeting.

2013 was a good year for the city of Sartell according to their annual reports. The city continues to grow with 71 new building permits issued for housing.

The community also grew with the development of new buildings such as Little Caesers and the C-Store located across the Former Mill site.

Freezing pipes has been an issue in the city with totals now up to about 40 complaints. Public works are looking to make changes to piping that would help eliminate the problem in the future.

Police Chief Jim Hughes says while calls have increased over the year the amount of serious crimes have gone down (this excludes the recent developments over the past month). He says they received a grant for about $22,000 which they put back into community programs.

The fire department also saw a good year in 2013. Fire Chief Ken Heim says they responded to 144 calls, which estimated a total loss of $54,000. A majority of their calls had to do with vehicle fires.
