The Council was informed that during the last week in July the MS Tram Bike Ride will be coming into Fillmore County and are requesting permission to utilize the camping area east of Spring Valley on CR8.

Several hundred bikers will be participating.

Approval was also given for the installation of electricity to several of the sites at the area. The lights were part of the initial proposal and will cost $8,736.33. The low bid was given to McConnell Electric of Spring Valley. City Administrator Deb Zimmer also said that as part of the project will be a dump facility at the area.
