The application for an Iowa DNR Resource Enhancement Grant was recently approved by the Kalona City Council. The $75,000 would be used to install a 3/4 mile concrete trail around the park. It would have eventually been connected to the Bunker Mill Trail. Mayor of Kalona, Ken Herington, says due to the Bunker Mill Bridge fire, that may not happen.
According to Washington County Engineer, Jacob Thorius, once he has an estimate for a bridge inspection, he’ll meet with those who want to see the county owned bridge repaired, to discuss the cost.
