SL Council Approves Trail Plan

There were no public comments during a hearing Monday afternoon on plans for the North Lake Avenue recreational trail.
The Storm Lake city council approved the plans for the trail… which would run alongside Lake Avenue from Tenth Street north to C-49. The project was originally let last June… but bids were 29-percent above the engineer’s estimate and the council rejected the bids.
Infrastructure director Pat Kelly told the council the plans are mostly the same, with a few minor changes. Bids will be opened on February 17th by the DOT. The project is estimated at 731-thousand dollars. Kelly says the city is receiving two federal grants, totaling 193-thousand dollars.
