Sheldon, Iowa — The Recreational Trail Project is the only new business item listed on the agenda for the Sheldon City Council to discuss at their meeting Wednesday October 21st. The Council will address an engineering proposal for approximately 6900 feet of additional rec trail in the new park on the East side of the City. The project would involve construction of a ten foot wide trail in and around the park according to the Master Plan for the area.
Beck Engineering of Spirit Lake estimates that the project would cost approximately $490,000 and could be constructed all at once or in phases and they would charge $19,500 for their engineering services. If the agreement is approved by the council, Beck Engineering will begin their work this month and have a preliminary design with the City Staff in November. They would have the plans and estimated construction cost ready for the city in December.
Wednesday’s Council meeting begins at 4:30 in the upper level of the Sheldon Community Services Center.
