Battle Creek officials consider moving beach

Lead in text: 
City officials say move is for safety. A more open area would keep distance between swimmers and boaters.
Relocating Willard Beach slightly north is part of the plan to upgrade the city-owned park on Goguac Lake. The city of Battle Creek is preparing to ask the state of Michigan to fund most of the $400,000 project that could give beach-goers a new sandy sunning spot for summer 2015.
