Woody Roux, mayor of Ada, Minn., walks past the town's relocated West Main Pizza

Growth projected in west-central Minnesota counties


ADA – Ask Mayor Woody Roux for a tour of the town he’s called home for 24 years, and like a proud father, he’ll walk you down Main Street highlighting all the amenities: a movie theater, radio station, newspaper, pizza parlor and celebration hall.

“We have a grocery store that’s a going concern,” he said. “We have a good hardware store.”
