Fifteen mayors from Mississippi River towns and cities, including St. Cloud Mayor David Kleis, go to in Washington, D.C., next week to talk with lawmakers about river issues.
They’re part of the Mississippi River Cities & Towns Initiative.
They’ll also meet with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to discuss challenges, as well as hold meetings with federal officials on disaster preparedness, conservation and trade.
Kleis will preside over an inter-agency meeting Wednesday morning.
