Culver's set to open in Delano Mon., Dec. 11

Culver's will open next week, bringing the Wisconsin chain's famous ButterBurgers and frozen custard to Delano.

The restaurant's grand opening will be Monday, Dec. 11, owner Ryan Kaiser said. That follows a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:15 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 9.

The lobby and drive-thru will be open 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday to Saturday, according to the restaurant's website.

Heritage Center may get elevator

The City of Delano expects to get a grant from Minnesota's Legacy Fund to install an elevator in the Delano Heritage Center.

Nothing has been officially announced, but city officials are cautiously optimistic they'll get the funds, Community Enrichment Director Nick Neaton said. The building is a local landmark.

"For many, many, many years, it was the main municipal building in Delano," Neaton said. "It has played a role in Delano's history."

Council passes 2024 budget, final tax levy

Following the city’s annual state-mandated truth-in-taxation hearing, the Delano City Council approved the city’s budget and tax levy for next year.

Finance Director Brian Bloch explained budget basics and how the city developed its budget for 2024 to those who were attending the meeting.

He described the budget as a “tool” the city uses to manage its resources.

“Once approved, it doesn't mean we will spend that money,” Bloch said. “All of the items that are in the budget still need to be approved by council before they're spent.”
