AUSTIN, MN — An area city’s leaders are hoping the state can help them make a long-awaited project-a reality.

People in Austin are asking for 500,000 dollars in bonding money.

They want to complete a planned bike trail.

It’s known as “The Blazing Star Trail” and aims to connect Albert Lea and Austin.

“We would like to see this trail come through,” Austin Mayor Tom Stiehm said. “It would increase the activity between Austin and Albert Lea. It should be. It’s just one of those things we need to take care of and get done.”

He is excited about the project and believes it would entice people to get out and see what the communities have to offer.
