 • Cabin floor plan at Briggs Woods Park discussed at Conservation Board meeting.

 The Hamilton County Conservation Board Thursday morning looked at a floor plan for yet another camper cabin facility at Briggs Woods Park south of Webster City. The cabin project would be in cooperating with the Legacy Learning Center with funding coming from the Enhanced Hamilton County Foundation and the Resource Enhancement and Protection (REAP) dollars. The cabin would be for two purposes. It would serve as a location for the classes offered by the Legacy Learning Center and for those using it for overnight usage. There was no final decision reached on the floor plan. The issue will be revisited again at next month's board session. In one other matter the Hamilton County Conservation Board approved a three percent wage increase for all full time staff conservation employees. Director Brian Lammers also informed board members that the Memorial Day weekend was a good one in regards to visitors coming to the three county parks but not all the camping sites were full.
