GRANDVIEW — The town council of Grandview has accepted a $90,000 quote from Superior Seawalls, Docks, & Dredge for a new boat dock to be built for the town. The purchase of a new dock has been a high priority item for the river front town.
Prior to passing the motion for the dock, the council had the opportunity to ask questions to Doug Harper with the boat dock company. He discussed any clarification or concerns that the board had with the cost estimate, the length of the dock and the process of moving the dock for winter storage.
The project will include a new aluminum decking boat dock, gangway, boat dock bumpers and more features. This is the third bid the town has received from a company for the project.
Being a busy time of year for the company, the town made a motion for the purchase of the dock, since it will be six to seven weeks before they can start. The hope is that the dock will not only be used by the local community but will bring more visitors to the town.
Sheets made a motion to approve the $90,000 boat dock to be built for the town of Grandview. Board member Dakota Risse seconded the motion. The motion passed.
The town will be paying for the project out of American Rescue Plan funds, boat dock fund, solar farm fund, parks and recreation fund and the Spencer County Parks and Recreation grant funds.
The council discussed the creation of a buffer zone for the town with town attorney Andrew Foster. The attorney will look into what the town will need to establish a buffer zone, and will discuss it at May’s meeting.
The town has applied to a grant through the Spencer County Visitors Bureau.
