Agreement termed 'a work in progress'
While agreeing to buy a dredge, the county board of supervisors wants to prevent additional costs when a local water quality commission is formed next year to oversee continued lake dredging.
The Buena Vista County Board of Supervisors met with attorney Gary Armstrong to discuss a draft of the 28E agreement forming the joint-water quality commission between the cities of Storm Lake and Lakeside, the county and the Lake Preservation Association. Armstrong and the supervisors met Tuesday.
Supervisor Jim Gustafson noted concern that the first draft did not contain provisions calling for the City of Storm Lake to spend an additional $375,000 if the current city-owned land east of the municipal golf course does not pan out as a possible spoil site.
