The Price-Taylor County Pine Line Commission recently asked Russ Aszmann , the Taylor County Forestry and Recreation Director to apply for a grant with funding to be used for resurfacing the former railroad bed. The grant has been approved, but local funding is also required. The commission is hoping to raise $25,000 in addition to the $100,000 in grant funds which should be adequate to add a new surface to approximately 6 miles of the rail trail, or 1/3 of the distance to the Price County Line. Individuals or civic organizations who wish to contribute to the surfacing project can contact the Forestry Department at the Taylor County Courthouse.
Commission members include: Marv Kuenne, Patty Krug, Karla Klapatauskas, Chuck Zenner and Russ Aszmann. If adequate funding is secured, work on the project will begin this spring.
