The ditch along the south side of the park was discussed. The ditch would have a tube and covered with rock for additional parking. The Unadilla Area Fund would be paying for this project, and it would not have to be engineered. Zahn contacted the Nebraska Parks and Rec to see about grants. The project does not meet the $80,000.00 minimum amount needed for a grant. Crownover will have Lovell Excavating give us an estimate for the project.
The Board discussed if there are any new projects for the year for our budget workshop. It was decided to add an estimated $20,000.00 to the General Operating expenses, $100,000.00 to the water operating expenses, and $41,000.00 to the street operating expenses.
