COLUMBIA CITY â€” Two weeks ago, Park Director Mark Green informed Columbia Cityâ€™s Common Council that part of the bank of Blue River collapsed into the water, creating a hazard for those on the greenway trail.
As Green worked toward a solution for the first collapse, another portion of the eroded bank fell into the river this weekend.
What is expected to be a pricey fix is also an emergency one, as the erosion has created safety concerns for those using the trail.
â€śCan we work on getting it fixed right away and discuss funding at the next meeting?â€ť Clerk-Treasurer Rosie Coyle asked the Council Tuesday night.
The Council approved Coyleâ€™s recommendation by unanimous vote, but questioned what measures can be taken to prevent more erosion in the future.
