The Wisner City Council meeting last night was brief, with the trail project being the most heavily discussed agenda item.

The trail, connecting tenth street to the park will have a connection to the auditorium, though it was undetermined if it would connect to the east or west side of the building. A ditch on the west side of the auditorium is legally classified as a wetland, meaning it falls under extensive federal regulations. Council member Barry Meyer shared a request that had been made by a member of the public to cover the ditch on the west side of the building, calling it an eyesore, though the council decided against tying that into the trail project.
