The Wadena City Council gave its blessing to a restaurant owner to add an outdoor seating area.

Jim Formanek, owner of The Uptown, presented plans to build an outdoor dining area in what is currently the building's parking lot. A dumpster would be moved, the outdoor dining area would be handicap accessible and about five tables with umbrellas are planned.


Formanek said he hopes to have the project done in August.
