Montevideo lets fish pond offer go

Email

MONTEVIDEO -- The Montevideo City Council has declined an offer from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to stock a storm water retention pond as a fishing pond for youth in the community.

Council members were following the recommendation of the city's park board at their meeting Monday. The park board had cited concerns about safety, the costs of developing handicapped accessible access, and possible contamination of fish as among the reasons not to pursue the offer.
