SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND:  The Merrill ice draggers, INC. (MID), is a non for profit corporation, based in Merrill, Wisconsin. For most of the past 55 years, each winter, MID has conducted automobile races on the frozen surface of Lake Alexander, at Ullmann's Bay off of the boat landing for Council Grounds State Park. These races have drawn thousands of people, consisting of participants and spectators, each year, who support and enjoy this event. These events generate significant tourism revenue for the Merrill Area each winter. MID also donates its proceeds to local charities to support the community. In order for the MID event to continue, it needs local government partner(s) which would adopt an ordinance authorizing the event as its traditional location and/or dedicating law enforcement to preserve free and open use of that location. 

ACTION PETITIONED FOR: By signing below, I hereby express my support for the Merrill Ice Draggers Event at its Traditional Lake Alexander location and encourage the Town of Merrill, City of Merrill, and Lincoln County to engage in the adoption of an ordinance permitting the event and/ or supporting the event through supply of its law enforcement as reasonably needed to keep the event safe and open for the permitted use.
