Updates on River Walk, Taylor Field
Betty Finch and Herb Trinrud reported on the work being done at Taylor Field at the Oct. 8 meeting of the Iola Village Board,
"John Lashua will be digging out the raised area of the pavement and filling it back in," Trinrud said.
The project is estimated to cost $2,000.
Mary Jo Miller, project engineer, gave an update on the Iola River Walk.
"The three bridges have been installed and all the work is done with the exception of a few posts that need to be put in near Town Line Road," said Miller.
Miller noted that one of the three bridges will be a covered bridge and that volunteers will be used for that construction.
Boardwalk construction will start the third or fourth week in October, with the completion day set for Dec. 1.
"Town Line Road reconstruction is well underway and the bridge will be in by the middle to end of October," reported Miller.
Miller recommended that the village take a second look at the curb on Depot Street, between Main Street and the alley.
"There is a section of the curb that is in poor condition and a gutter will need to be added. Now is the time to get that repaired," she said.
In its current condition, it inhibits access to Firkus Lumber for people needing handicap accessibility.
Richard Anderson, building inspector for the village said, "We need to provide equal access to all sidewalks."
On a motion by Dave Harper, the board approved an additional $5,000 to put in a gutter and handicap access along Depot Street.
A Finance Meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Village Hall.
The 2013 Village of Iola budget hearing will take place at 6:15 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12.
