The Detroit Lakes City Council on Tuesday agreed to provide up to $425,000 for parking lot improvements at the new Detroit Mountain Recreation Area.

A story on Wednesday incorrectly put the amount at $550,000.

The Detroit Mountain group had originally requested $550,000, but had lowered its request to $425,000 at a city finance committee meeting Monday, according to City Finance Officer Pam Slifka.
