Nauvoo-Montrose Ferry Suggested
Nauvoo, IL – A group from Montrose has proposed the idea of ferry service between there and Nauvoo. Nauvoo Mayor John McCarty says the group was seeking interest and possible support, but did not have a cost for the needed feasibility study. He says the delegation will try to come up with a cost and return to the Nauvoo City Council with more specific figures. McCarty says the ferry could help develop part of the town's riverfront. He says a group of Nauvoo area businessmen is looking into developing a dinner-cruise boat service which could be based in Nauvoo. He says the feasibility study for ferry service could help that group as well.
