Whittier School Still Empty
The Whittier School Building remains empty and has cost the Brainerd School District about $200,000 in heating and maintenance costs since its vacancy in 2008. The district recently asked the City of Brainerd and Essentia Health if either were interested in acquiring the property. Essentia has said they are not interested. The city council toured the building on Tuesday and will discuss the matter at a future meeting.
