City says street can close for St. Mary's activities


WILLMAR -- The Willmar City Council voted 4-3 Monday to close two blocks of Kandiyohi Avenue Southwest for a St. Mary's Church event despite a council-passed policy that recommends major streets such as Kandiyohi Avenue should not be closed for neighborhood events.

Council members voting in favor of a motion by Ron Christianson to honor the church's request and close Kandiyohi Avenue bet-ween 11th Street and 13th Street were Christianson, Steve Ahmann, Tim Johnson and Jim Dokken.
