Tony Lunde of Sartell Boy Scout Troop 11 wants to improve the entrance to Sauk River Regional Park for his Eagle Scout project.
The Sartell City Council approved his plan at a recent council meeting after he confidently filled in the council as to his intentions.
Lunde wants to build and install a wooden, roofed information kiosk at the parking-lot entrance by Sauk River Regional Park. He plans to raise the estimated $530 it will cost for the project, and he did not request any city funding for his project. Other scouting volunteers will help him with the task. Part of his Eagle Scout project is to get sponsors to help with it.
Lunde said it’s totally up to the City of Sartell to post whatever kinds of information it wants for park visitors, which could include events at the park, a map of the trails or anything else.
Lunde hopes to get the kiosk done before the snow flies.
