Council approves engineering work for potential housing development

While meeting in regular session Monday evening, Oct. 7, the Falls City Council approved a request from REGA Engineering Group, Inc., Lincoln, to provide engineering services for a proposed new housing development just west of the Wilderness Falls site in northwest Falls City.

REGA’s proposal was for $6,950 and will include the necessary work to provide infrastructure (utilities, sidewalks, streets, curbs, culverts, utility poles, etc.) for that area. Five lots are included in the plan, which could result in the construction of at least five new homes.

Administrator Gary Jorn said the development would enhance the City’s tax revenue in coming years.

A request from Tri State Truck and Tractor Repair for an access road from Highway 73 was tabled by the Council until further information can be obtained. Jorn and several Council members noted that an access road from the highway would certainly benefit the business, but questions arose about property lines and any effect a road would have on the Aquatic Park. Councilman Don Ferguson suggested that the City needed to talk with Tri State to see what they have in mind.  A small portion of City-owned property would likely be involved.
