CLEAR LAKE, Iowa - Back in August, Mason City's city council approved a letter of interest to host an overnight stopover for the RAGBRAI bike rally in 2020.  It looks like Clear Lake could be throwing it's support to its neighbor to the east.

At Monday night's city council meeting, Councilman Bennett Smith suggested the city should draft its own letter showing their support for having Mason City being an overnight stopover.

The last time Mason City was chosen was back in 2014.  Clear Lake City Administrator Scott Flory will draft a letter of support and the city council will vote on approving the letter during their September 30th meeting.
