Parks to be restored in Howards Grove

by Steve Ottman Review Correspondent

HOWARDS GROVE—The Howards Grove Village Board has authorized the Public Works Department to do maintenance and restoration to the Fischer Creek Park trail.

The trail has been washed out because of the wet spring and heavy flooding cause by the rain the area has received during the month of April.

All of the trustees felt that this is a priority and should be dealt with right away, especially the rip-rap around the bridge supports.

The board also authorized the department to order 285 yards of wood chips to be used in and around Memorial and Riverside Parks.

A storage shed at the Riverside Park was approved, with building materials to cost $3,771. An overhead door will also be constructed. This would bring the total of the project to about $16,500, with asphalt and lawn to be added.

The board granted a request for extra security at the Riverside Park overnight for a wedding that was approved earlier this year.

An update on the Lakeshore Pallet wood-burning furnace issue was discussed. Lakeshore Pallet has sent a quote to an engineering firm to do a study.

A resolution was approved to levy a special assessment to properties affected by the State 32/42 road construction project. A special assessment hearing will be held at the Village Hall Thursday, May 30, at 6:30 p.m.

A preliminary request for a second driveway at 1802 Appletree Road was approved.

Board members discussed a review of the yard waste procedures and dumpster use. They felt that 90 percent of the village is adhering to the new yard waste ordinances.

Public Works is notifying the other 10 percent to drop off yard waste at the dumpster by giving them a tag informing them that the village will impose fines if the yard waste isn’t removed within a certain time frame.

Director Ryan Welsing felt that for the most part many of the residents have complied with the village.
