City approves requests for Ice Fishing Challenge

Email News Alerts

Organizers of the 2011 Ice Fishing Challenge in Alexandria received the city's approval for two requests - to close a road and use a park.


The council approved both requests at its September 27 meeting after tabling the issue at a previous meeting.

The Sertoma Club and the Viking Sportsmen made the requests because they are changing the location of the February 12, 2011 event. Participants will be ice fishing on Lake Agnes instead of Lake L'Homme Dieu.
