SL Council approves auditorium landscaping plan, names park

The Silver Lake City Council approved a final landscaping plan for the front of the auditorium at its Monday meeting. The total cost of the project is estimated at $7,275. The council has been looking at plans for some time and approved the plan based on a recommendation from the planning commission.
The plan includes one flag pole from Countryside Flagpole in Hutchinson for $2,200. A‚Äąproposal from Kaczmarek Landscaping in Silver Lake was accepted for a cost of $5,075. The proposal includes a 15-foot paver seating area, electrical conduit for a possible sign in the future, a pyramidal arborvitae shrub and Karl Foerster grasses in front of the building.
The Silver Lake Civic Association has committed to donate $4,000 and the Silver Lake American Legion presented the city with $1,000 at the meeting. The Silver Lake Lions Club also has expressed interest in donating to the project.
The council also approved an official name and placement of a sign for the city park located on Main Street. The park will now officially be called the Silver Lake Veterans Memorial Park. The American Legion has donated $5,113 for a stone sign for the park. The sign, which will be 64 inches wide, will be placed at the corner of Main Street and Park Avenue. The Legion will work with the public works department on the installation of the sign.
