Park Rapids wants to join the fight against Aquatic Invasive Species.

The city council asked staff to look for $2,000 in the budget to contribute to the Hubbard County Coalition of Lakes Association water inspection program in 2013.


Ken Grob, Hubbard County COLA member, said the spread of AIS continues to expand.

"We are at risk here in Hubbard County," he said.

Grob noted that zebra mussels have infested lakes in Otter Tail and Douglas Counties.
