 • Work begins on Jewellsworth Trail

 It was one month ago that ground was broken on the new Jewellsworth recreational trail linking the southern Hamilton County communities of Jewell and Ellsworth. On Thursday morning,Hamilton County Conservation Director Brian Lammers updated the board members on the progress thus far. The work on a bridge for the trail's drainage ditch is scheduled to be completed by Friday. Paving work on the bridge will begin soon. The goal is to have the trail completed by sometime in October. The trail is an abandoned rail line linking Jewell and Ellsworth.

The conservation board met with Scott Grummer of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources regarding the Little Wall Lake fisheries project. Grummer informed the board on what the trends he has seen at the lake. He suggested to director Lammers and the board on conducting a survey on fishing and boating opportunities for those who use Little Wall Lake. Grummer talked to the board about treatment of grass carp and aquatic vegetation in the lake.

In another matter, the conservation board reviewed quotes from Seamless Pro and Nisley Construction of Seymour on the roof replacement for the Little Wall Lake residence. The board would like to determine the future use of the residence before any decision is reached on approving a quote for the roof work.

A date of August 12 was set for a fund raising event at the Briggs Woods Golf Course addition.
