Kayak Launch, Fishing Platforms Coming To Beaver Dam’s Cotton Mill Park

(Beaver Dam) Beaver Dam will be getting a new kayak launch at Cotton Mill Park as part of a project that will also see the installation of fishing platforms below the dam. Wondra Construction of Iron Ridge was recently awarded the contract for $87,684. The city budgeted $150-thousand dollars for enhancements to Cotton Mill Park in the 2020 borrowing plan. City Engineering Coordinator Todd Janssen says the four platforms are located on an easement that the city holds on adjacent private property south of the dam. Stantec Consulting Services of Mequon was hired in July to draw-up the plans for $46,500. Other improvements identified include enhancements to the shoreline, plantings and habitat along with a paved trail and additional access to Haskell Street.
