SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (KNSI) When the Sauk Rapids City Council meets Tuesday afternoon, they'll discuss issuing a conditional-use permit for a shooting range and education center proposed for 3409 Mayhew Lake Road.

It would include more than 3,300 square feet of retail, education and training space, and a nearly 3,000 square foot shooting range.

A group called Firing Line LLC is seeking the permit. It earlier received the okay from the Sauk Rapids Planning Commission on several conditions--that only an acceptable level of gunfire be heard, the shooting range must be entirely enclosed, and any expansion would have to receive city approval.

The city council meets at 5 pm Tuesday at the Sauk Rapids Government Center to consider the request.
