Friday, May 29 things are happening at the new City park area on 400 South. Under the planning and direction of Clint Hafen, a group of volunteers with end dumps, side dump, and belly dump trailers along with loaders, backhoes, and graders began the process of creating a parking lot area for the new City park. The initial road base will be capped with crushed rock temporarily until it is covered with asphalt. This will allow for convenient parking while residents use the grass area for soccer and other summer activities. The annual Corn Fest will move to the new site this year as its permanent home.
There are many ideas and plans for continued development of park amenities. Please share your ideas and priorities with the City Council as they make short term and long range plans to expand the park facilities.
The bid opening for the construction of a new fire station to be constructed on the east side of the park area is tentatively scheduled for Monday, June 22. Once awared the construction is expected to take about 90 days.
