The Lake Maxinkuckee Amphitheater project in Culver is nearing the construction phase.
Town Manager Jonathan Leist told the Culver Town Council members last week that $47,501 was transferred from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority for this project. The town was able to get a $30,000 state grant along with additional online crowdfunding for the project. That money, along with the first half of the Marshall County Community Foundation grant, will allow the council to move forward with the construction phase.
The council members unanimously approved a proposal submitted by The Troyer Group in the amount of $15,100. The proposal includes a demolition and site plan, grading, utility and erosion control plan, site details, pergola details, lighting and electrical plans, landscaping and project specs. During construction, the company will assist the town with construction bids and pre-construction meetings. A representative will also present a report during a council meeting to update the members and the public on the progress of the project.
Construction on the project could begin yet this year.
