As has become the trend for the city of Prairie du Chien in recent years, the city has more money remaining in its 2014-2016 capital fund than anticipated for this time of year. This is the result of a number of projects coming in under budget as well as other projects not taking place for various unpredictable reasons. So, administration came to the common council Tuesday night with a list of proposed projects to be completed ahead of schedule, resulting in a decrease to the capital fund’s remaining balance.
The projects, which the council approved, include:
1) Repairs to the aquatic park pool, $10,348,
2) Repairs to Hoffman Hall’s north wall, $11,000, this is in addition to the $10,000 already allocated for this project and will cover the entire building,
3) Electrical improvements on St. Feriole Island, $26,000.
