Part of Main Street on the east side of town has been temporarily closed to allow for repairs to the storm drain. The storm drain carries rain/snow water from streets in the downtown area to Bridge Creek. The repairs are necessary to restore the flow of water to the Creek. The work includes adding an extension to the existing pipe and making improvements to the trench carrying the water. The work is being completed by Castle Engineering at a cost of $14,240.00.
Town Council authorized a contribution of $9,000.00 to the Gull Lake Ball Diamond Committee. The funds will be used to purchase shale for the new ball diamond that will be located on the east side of the Recreation Complex.
The ball diamond will accommodate Bantam, Midget,
and Senior baseball. The $9,000.00 funds will be transferred from the Recreation Reserve.
