Posted: Oct 19 2012 by ppowers

A number of issues faced the members of the Webster City Parks and Recreation Commission and Hamilton County Conservation Board at a joint meeting Thursday afternoon at the Legacy Cabin at Briggs Woods Park. There was a discussion on the application of Iowa Great Places grant for the installation of information kiosk panels at four different locations in Webster City. The proposed locations would be the Boone River bike trail and the Boone River bridge near Briggs Woods Park. Other locations would include the entrance to Briggs Woods Park and at Riverside Park. Both commissions will be learning in the coming weeks whether or not the grant will be approved.

There was a discussion on the Riverside Park campground in Webster City. The Webster City Parks and Recreation Commission gave its support of the Hamilton County Conservation Department's  operation of the Briggs Woods facility. Next month the commission will be meeting with the Webster City City Council for a work session focusing on the future of the campground facility at Riverside Park.

Both the commission and conservation board plan to apply for a hotel motel tax grant to purchase a heater for the cross country ski groomer.

Other matters discussed include the success of last July's RAGBRAI event in Hamilton County. Webster City and Hamilton County worked together to make the event a big one for the thousands of bikers and visitors. Kent Harfst also informed the conservation board about the new Wilson Brewer Historic Committee that held its first meeting this month. The general consensus was that the Webster City Parks and Recreation Commission and Hamilton County Conservation Board are working together for the betterment of all residents and the recreational opportunities.
