The Village of Machesney Park recently received $200,000 to construct a new boat ramp.
The grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will go toward the new ramp, which will be placed on the east side of Bauer Bridge. Along with the boat ramp, the Village plans to build a new park, a connecting bike path, and a new parking lot.
"We've been long overdue to have a nice ramp that we can put our boats in and the families can enjoy the park setting also," Village Mayor Jerry Bolin commented.
Machesney Park still has to apply for a permit from the state before construction can begin.
