SCOTTVILLE — The Scottville City Commission granted permission to the Western Michigan Old Engine Club to use a portion of the old sewer lagoons. The area, at least 2 acres, will be used for the club’s annual plow day in May. Club members will then plant oats in the area and harvest it a few weeks before the show’s annual show held the first weekend of August. The oats will then be used for equipment demonstrations during the annual show and the annual education day. 

Club members attended Monday’s city commission meeting. They said the oats field will not interfere with the disc golf course or the cross country running course. However, members do plan on clearing out some of the over-grown by autumn olive.
