–The City of Algona received another large contribution towards their redevelopment efforts at Central Park this week.
Algona Municipal Utilities announced Thursday that they are pledging $100,000 towards the project, which includes the construction of a new splash pad.
In the statement, AMU General Manager John Bilsten said “AMU is proud to be actively involved in the economic development of our community, which includes the growth and improvement of the parks and recreational opportunities we have to offer. Building a modern place to be outdoors and gather benefits the people who live here and helps bring new people to the area.”
Plans for the Central Park Redevelopment Project were approved at the City Council meeting Monday night. The project is set to take bids in March, with construction to begin this summer. The splash pad should be open for use in 2024.
