RHINELANDER - You might not be thinking about boating just yet, but the city of Rhinelander and some entrepreneurs want you to.

The Parks Buildings and Grounds Committee approved the rebuilding of piers at the Boom Lake landing.

After the piers have been replaced, boat tours will start in July.

The city says they'll help out with the costs, but wants the business owners to pay them back.

President of the Northwoods Chapter "Lets Go Fishing" Sue Koehne says they'll accommodate whatever their customers want to do.

"If somebody wants to go out for a couple of hours to fish, we'll take them," said Koehne.

"We can accommodate both wheel chairs and just people who need seating. We'd also do scenic tours out on the boom lake from the Hodag Park."

Koehne says they'll be looking for volunteers to help them out in the near future.
