The Detroit Lakes City Council gave a thumbs-up to a half cent sales tax on food, beverages and entertainment in the city, and voted to approve contacting the state legislature and starting the process of implementing the new tax.

A few of those to-do items include flowering rush, the crescent redevelopment area, and bike trail and parking.
