The current concrete boat ramp located at Circle Drive on the Country Club Lake
has seen better days. An increased interest in this feature has prompted
the City to fund the rehabilitation of the old ramp for this budget year in the
amount of $3,500.
Work on this project will begin this week with the draining of at least 5 feet
of water from the lake. Once the water level is down to a sufficient
level, the Marceline Street Crew will begin removing the old ramp, followed by
forming and pouring a new 14’ x 40’ ramp. This project should be completed
in October 2018, subject to weather conditions.
The lower water level in the lake will be significantly visible, but it is
necessary to complete the project. The lake will maintain sufficient depth
and water area to maintain fish stock and wildlife.
Following completion, the water levels will slowly return to normal with the
seasonal rain showers.
