The Wadena City Council passed a motion to apply for a Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) grant for up to $5,000.

Public Works Director Ron Bucholz and the council discussed what was and what was not eligible for the grant aimed at parks and trails.

"It's nice of Erica [Keppers] to be bringing this opportunity," council member Kay Browne said. "She's doing a good job of trying to get money here."

Bucholz said there was no guarantee they would receive the grant, or get the full amount.
