River's Edge Trail Map

The River's Edge Trail Committee is submitting a grant application for $300,000 to help extend the trail from Eldora to 260th St. near Gifford.

The River's Edge Trail Commission is close to its funding goal that would pay to complete the 4.4 mile section of the biking and walking trail from Steamboat Rock to Eldora. 

Commission Chair Chris Wieting told the Hardin County Board of Supervisors a $165,000 shortfall in funding was revealed when bid estimates came in 14 percent higher than anticipated last month.

Why make it a loan to be paid back with interest? It is not like a bike trail is a profit-making business. The board hesitates to make the $10,000 investment in this economic development project? I don't get it.
