Sartell Mayor Ryan Fitzthum joined me on WJON today. He says he and city is encouraging people to spend money locally to support Sartell businesses which includes local restaurants and bars that offer take out or delivery. He says he is working to offer relief for bars, restaurants, gyms and dance studios who have been shutdown by Governor Walz due to the pandemic. He says the city will do whatever they can to ease the pain of their financial loses.
Sartell's construction of their council chambers is nearing completion which will offer more space for the Mayor and Council during meetings. Fitzthum says the televised council meetings will be greatly improved by these adjustments.
