This document came from Crow Wing County and was included in everyone's Property Tax Statements.  It is a great tool to help understand how your property tax is calculated. 

In 2016, the Bay Lake Lions donated $50,000 for the remodeling of the Historic Deerwood Auditorium kitchen. This donation was the organization's Legacy Project.  The kitchen is now up to code and fully updated.  The City of Deerwood greatly appreciates this generous donation.    

Please click on the title to view this document.  The complete budget may be examined at the City Clerk's Office.  

The Deerwood Auditorium has undergone some recent renovation. Both bathrooms in the front of the building have been updated and are now handicapped accessible.  Also installed are hand air dryers which are sanitary and save paper. The baby changers in both restrooms are handy as well.

Please look over the attached flyer.  People are flushing things down their toilets that were never meant to be flushed.  This costs YOU money.  This will cause your sewer rates to rise and rise.
