Stevens Point council members approve McDill funding

Posted:

STEVENS POINT (WAOW)-- City council members voted unanimously Monday night to approve funding to restore McDill Pond. Whiting village leaders discovered a leak in the McDill Pond Dam last June.

Now, the Portage County Board of Supervisors must approve funding for plans to move forward. Leaders will take up that vote at a meeting Tuesday night.

The cost to repair the dam is estimated at more than $600,000 dollars. The City of Stevens Point, The Lake District and Portage County will split repair costs if county leaders approve funding.

Mayor Andrew Halverson told Newsline 9 he hopes funding is approved, so the pond can be restored soon.
