Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- The Lake Superior Zoo was one of the hardest hit during the 2012 floods.

Duluth has been struggling to keep the zoo open after funding from the state and FEMA never came through following the floods.

Now, city councilors are considering bringing in a company to help city officials and the zoological society develop a plan for the future of the zoo and Fairmount Park.

City administrators say the company will help the zoological society and the city work together.

"How do we make this a better overall experience that encompasses many more different kinds of activities and different arrangements that sill have zoo elements in it, that still has zoo concepts in it but that is more tightly integrated with the activities around there?" said Chief Administrator, Dave Montgomery.

The councilors will take up that discussion at Monday's council meeting.
