SOUDAN- At a special meeting Thursday afternoon, the Breitung Town Board approved purchasing a new “cardinal red” 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 pickup truck for $33,000 from Ranger Chevrolet in Hibbing.

Chairman Tim Tomsich reported that he met with Tower Mayor Orlyn Kringstad, airport director John Burgess, and residents Dan Mobilia and Dave Pollock, who have raised concerns about noise levels and frequency of seaplane traffic near their homes.
