The Wadena City Council hired Legislative Associates, Inc., to lobby for funds to expand U.S. Highway 10 through Wadena in the next five-year federal transportation bill.


"I'm very concerned that it is a five-year bill and if we miss the boat it's five years until we have the next opportunity," Councilman Don Niles said.

Ulteig, the city engineer, will split the $2,200 per month cost to hire Legislative Associates from Sept. 1, 2009, to June 1, 2010.
