Motorcycle club gets county OK for summer event

MARSHALL COUNTY — The Marshall County Board of Zoning Appeals approved the request of the local ABATE motorcycle club to hold its' end of summer fundraising bash on private property at 10B and Upus roads.

The issue came up before the board last month, but was tabled until additional information and concerns could be addressed. Security, traffic control and sanitary concerns were discussed and documentation submitted by the organizers.

The event is one of the fundraisers for the group, which uses the proceeds to fund rider education programs and provide toys for local children at Christmas.
