Never mind, for now, a $1.4 million plan to clean up wood chips from an old logging operation and replace them with a new sandy beach on the south shore of Lake Bemidji. City Council members voted 5-2 Monday night against scheduling a May referendum asking residents to pay for the new beach.

According to the Bemidji Pioneer, the vote could delay the project for as much as two years as other funding options are sought.
