Meeting Watch RTSA

RIVER FALLS – The River Falls City Council modified the contract being used to fund the Comprehensive Plan at its May 10 meeting.

The Council unanimously approved modifying their contract with SRF Consulting Group to include the Bike and Pedestrian Plan to the Comprehensive Plan.

The Comprehensive Plan is being contracted through SRF. The consulting group proposed adding the Bike and Pedestrian Plan after plans from the city to secure a contract from a third-party was deemed not necessary.      

Securing a contract with SRF adds another $60,000 to the project, bringing the total estimated cost of the contract to $198,881. Including funding from grants, the total cost of the project is now expected to be $213,881.

The general fund budget and grants are being used to fund the project. The project is expected to be implemented in spring of 2023.
