The Dell Rapids City Council heard that the campground expansion and comfort station plans are moving forward and still plan to be completed in 2017 during their last regular meeting on Monday, June 5th.
City Administrator Just Weiland reported to the council that the city has received clearance from the Corp of Engineers that the area for the campground expansion (just south of Rickeman Field in the old tractor pull area) will be removed from their wetland maps. The next step is for DGR to proceed with issuing a FEMA No-Rise Certificate for the area. Once the city receives that analysis, they will know how to proceed with elevations for utility placements and then installation can begin.
Weiland also reported that structural plans for the new comfort station. Administration is still waiting for the final electrical, plumbing, and mechanical plans for the new building. Once those plans are received, the city will be able to put the project out for bid.
“We should be able to go out to bid in the next week or two,” said Weiland.
Administration is still targeting to have the campground expansion and comfort station projects completed by the fall of 2017.
