This is something that many dedicated people have been working towards for a number of years,” said Lanesboro Mayor Autumn Johnson. “The current and past city councils and administrators played a major role in getting the ball rolling.  The community members have done a great job of supporting this effort by contacting legislators and appearing at events in town. The Fillmore County Board of Commissioners and area city councils have passed resolutions of support as well. And both (State Rep.) Greg Davids and (State Sen.) Jeremy Miller have worked very hard in St. Paul to make this a reality. It truly has been a group effort.”
