Dick Markley a member of the County Park and Recreation Board and committee chairman for the relocation of the historic trustee cabin updated members of the County Park Board on December 8th.

Markley said there has been some progress on relocating the historic cabin from the curve on State Road 17 at the old West School further to the south to the Memorial Forest.  While the cabin was dismantled in August and the logs were moved to a secure location until the foundation work at the Memorial Forest was completed.  Markley told members concrete has been poured for the new foundation.

The footings were poured and the next day the foundation was completed.   The concrete is cured so it is ready for the reassembly of the logs. 

When asked if the contractor, Yoder Log & Timer Pro had indicated when they plan to begin the assembly project Markley said he wanted to give them a few weeks before he started asking them when they would start.  He said they are aware that the foundation work is complete.

In other business, the Marshall County Park and Recreation Board approved moving their meetings from the first Thursday after the first Monday to the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. in the second-floor meeting room of the County Building.  The change was necessary because the County Council has moved their meetings to 6 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month in the same location.
