Culver Town Council Receives Stellar Update

Culver Town Manager Jonathan Leist updated the Culver Town Council this week on work being done toward being designated a stellar community with the Stellar Communities Designation Program.

Leist said he and Utility Superintendent Bob Porter met with Marshall County Highway Supervisor Jason Peters to review details for the walking/biking trail. The Marshall County Commissioners agreed to pave one mile of the walking/biking trail as an in-kind contribution for this project within the town’s Stellar plan.

Leist added that letters of support are still being gathered to include in the Stellar packet that’s due in August. He’s asking letters to be submitted by Aug. 1.

Documentation of financial and in-kind commitments are also being collected.

The council did unanimously approve a resolution to pledge funds toward Stellar projects. The council will be pledging $200,000 toward the Cavalier Sports Park and the Culver Beach Lodge. This is separate from the resolution the council passed concerning the Sandhill Farms workforce development housing project.

A video containing interviews from Culver about what they love about Culver will be included in this year’s packet. Interviews are tentatively set for Saturday, Aug. 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Culver Town Park. All are invited to participate.
