Washington negotiates for RAGBRAI
The Washington City Council approved a letter of support for the Washington Chamber of Commerce to attempt to make Washington a stop on RAGBRAI 2015. Chamber director Michelle Redlinger said that if the bid is successful, the annual bike event could bring up to 15,000 people to town. The event next year will coincide with the county fair and the night the bicyclists would stay in town would be Friday. The chamber is also requesting support from other area groups.
