City Dollars Will Help Fund Final Phases Of Beaver Dam Skate Park

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Operations Committee Monday night approved the use of city dollars to fund the final phases of the skate park. The on-again-off-again project located at Fletcher Road near Beichl Avenue was allocated 25-thousand dollars in the city’s Capital Improvements Program to help the non-profit pour a concrete slab. After several years of fundraising, the group has secured the land, the skateboard obstacles and around $28-thousand dollars in cash. Late last year, bids came in around $50-thousand dollars. The bid the city received this spring was just over $31-thousand dollars. Alderman Mick Fischer voted against the additional funding saying the project was pitched to the city as being self-funded. The common council will vote on the bids at their next meeting later this month.
