More Parking Possible On East Side Of EHS Gym

May 19, 2016 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Persons coming to Elgin High School on a Friday night and finding no place to park may one day see that problem fade away.
No action was taken last week, but the District #18 Board of Education discussed the possibility of developing a 60’ by 200’ parking lot which would be located on the east side of the school’s gymnasium.
Superintendent Dan Polk said he has had preliminary discussions with Bygland’s about what it would take, in terms of moving dirt, to build up that area for a parking lot. Preliminary estimates, he said, for the dirt work were between $1,000 to $1,500. However, as discussion continued, there would be some additional costs such as building underground drainage as well as putting rock in the parking area.
Polk told the board he would attempt to get more information for them to consider at an upcoming meeting.

“It’s another draw to our community”.  “(We’ve) always been a supporter of family, children and youth programs.”
Those words, spoken by American Legion Post 229 Commander Gary Hoefer and VFW Post 5816 Commander LeRoy Kerkman, sum up the sentiments of each organization’s membership. Both posts made significant donations to the Elgin Swimming Pool Renovation Project recently. Each receives memorials over the years which they use to benefit the organization and the community as a whole. The pool donations were made from various funds received by the posts. Combined, $25,000 was donated.
“It’s one way to bring people here,” said Hoefer about the pool. Both men continued on to reminisce about their younger years spent at the city pool.
