EDA to use Lake Wobegon Trailhead building

by Cori Hilsgen

The Economic Development Authority will use the Lake Wobegon Trailhead building as an office one day each week.

St. Joseph City Council members voted to upgrade the facility with heating and air conditioning, with total costs not to exceed $20,000. Since it’s a regional facility, sales-tax funds can be used.

EDA Director Cynthia Smith-Strack had met with the St. Joseph Area Chamber of Commerce representatives to discuss options for using city space for an office. The Lake Wobegon option was suggested  for use since the EDA helped with the funding and construction of the facility.

The Chamber would provide the dates they need the building and the city would rent the building year-round for the remaining dates. This will allow the building to be used for events, meetings and other gatherings.
