Doyle said she is "thrilled" about the project.
Leanne Doyle, executive director of Walleye Weekend, said it's too soon to know if the weigh in will be back at its former site for 2014.
The excavated silt will be disposed of at Lakeside West off Highway 45 with hopes that some of the material can be used to enhance a sledding hill at UW Fond du Lac. Air Force Shoes Girls The Noon Optimist club has been spearheading the project.

Park Board member Gary Miller said he's been at Lakeside Park and has looked at the channels.
