Commissioners OK repair project at Kahle

Mike Schneider

Man will repair the damage nature did to Kahle Park’s north slope. Thursday Douglas Commissioners approved a $34,000 contract to improve the hillside damaged during the New Year’s 1997 flood.

Federal Emergency Management Agency funds will be used to make the repairs, which will include grading, rip-rap installation, vegetation and concrete and walkway repair.

FEMA allocated a total of $58,000 for repairs to the park. The remaining $24,000 will be used to repair other parts of the park.

The north slope of Kahle Park was damaged by a mudslide which flowed into Burke Creek. Part of the remaining funds will be used for Stream Environmental Improvements to the creek.

F & B Holdings, of Stateline, will undertake the improvements to the hillside.
