Elbow Lake says no to utility improvements

excerpted from Fergus Falls Daily Journal, Jan. 24, 2008

The city of Elbow Lake will not move forward with a proposed underground utility and street improvement project following a public hearing at the city's community center Wednesday evening. The project, slated for Elbow Lake's west side, would have included an estimated $2.1 million in improvements to the city's sanitary sewer, watermain, streets and sidewalks.

For many of the residents in attendance, the project's financial burden was too large to ignore. Though the city would have covered $1.2 million of of the cost, assessed residents would have contributed the rest, with some property owners in the $20,000-$40,000 range.
