CLEAR LAKE, Iowa- After a vote at the city council meeting on Monday night, more construction could be coming to the city of Clear Lake sooner than later.

The Clear Lake City Council voted unanimously to approve spending $9,000 for a marketing and feasibility report. Once completed, the result could be a new hotel and convention center.

A local business owner told KIMT that she is in favor of the council’s decision.

“I think it’s great,” said Niki Monson. “As a business owner, the more people we can get into the town, the better. It’s a great little lake town and people that come here seem to enjoy it.”

A location for the complex will be determined once the feasibility report has been completed.
