IG council hears from Badger Creek Park committee

The Ida Grove City Council heard from two members of the Badger Creek Park improvement committee Oct. 1 relating to some misconceptions that have developed in regard to the park.

Christie Van Houten, who is working with a group of other individuals to update Badger Creek Park in Zobel’s Addition, addressed the council in regard to calls and letters the city has received about the proposed plans for the park and a letter the council received from Byron Peters at its last meeting, noting his concerns about the project. The calls and letters mainly addressed the possible cost of the park and opposition to removing trees in the area.
