Storm Lake City Council Approves Funding for Lake Monitoring Equipment

The Storm Lake City Council on Monday approved funding for lake monitoring equipment.

Storm Lake City Manager Keri Navratil said the Lake Improvement Commission wants to purchase the equipment for 25 thousand dollars…

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will pay for the yearly maintenance fee.

The Lake Preservation Association has committed to paying for half of the equipment purchase price. The City of Storm Lake committed to paying for up to five-thousand dollars, pending the decision of other members of the Lake Improvement Commission, which include the City of Lakeside and Buena Vista County, in splitting the remaining cost. Navratil said the City of Lakeside has previously discussed the matter, but wasn’t sure about BV County.
