The Economic Flood Recovery Committee has been formed to work on the planning grant from the EDA (Economic Development Administration). Members of that committee include: Brad Stenimetz, Barb Melvin, Kris Gabrielson, Dean Steinmetz and Greg Lawton. Information gathered from previously held meetings is currently being reviewed and discussed.
The first public meeting was held on October 29th. An outline of the meeting can be found in the PDF document below. The maps are small and difficult to see, but there are large maps for viewing at the village hall.
All residents are invited to attend the 2nd meeting for additional information on December 9th at the Emergency Services Building - 6:00. Notes for the 2nd meeting are located on the HOME page.

Watch this space for information as it becomes available regarding the EDA (Economic Development Administration) flood recovery grant. The grant is shared among the villages of La Farge, Ontario, Viola and Readstown. La Farge’s main concern is planning for the relocation of the electrical substation and the possibility of additional facilities/homes. The process is just beginning with a contract signed with Vierbicher as the consultant on June 22, 2020. The Mississippi River Regional Planning Commission will be assisting the villages in the process.
