Lanesboro City Council Report: Park grant offered


Fri, Feb 25th, 2005
Posted in Features

Andy Bunge offered to donate fifty cents (up to $500) for every dollar donated to the Lanesboro City park system before October 31, 2005. Calling his donation the Bunge Construction Challenge Grant, Bunge addressed the Lanesboro City Council at their regular meeting on February 22. He told the council that he had planned to speak with the Park Board first, but since their meeting had been canceled, he decided to bring the offer to the council rather than waiting a month. Bunge has made the same offer to the Preston Park Board. The use of the grant is totally at the discretion of the park board; Bunge recognizes the importance of the park systems to the cities and has chosen this method for encouraging the parks. The council graciously accepted the offer.

Water Runoff

Kelly Jean Ohl returned to the council to check on her water runoff problem. Don Koch from Fillmore County Soil and Water inspected Ohls property and visited the Bob Schrupp building site. Koch said the runoff was not coming directly from Schrupps home. He did, however, suggest that Schrupp put his driveway higher on the hill to keep from causing more of a problem. At this time the Schrupps are using a road already on the land to access their cabin; Mr. Schrupp said his engineers had made the same suggestion for his new driveway.

Planning and Zoning member Bob Norby commented that the excessive runoff had been a result of the unusual thaw that had left ground frozen underneath. Council member Tom Dybing added that the rain from eighteen acres naturally drains into the waterway above Ohls property. It was suggested that the least expensive solution would be to use a caterpillar to reroute the water way by creating a diversion berm.

The amicable solution was to keep communication open on the subject with Schrupps engineer meeting with the Planning and Zoning Commission before Schrupps begin to build their new driveway.
