Evansville looks into boat dock lease changes

Renewal of the boat dock lease agreement with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources was discussed at the Jan. 9 Evansville Village Board meeting.

The board has discussed the lease previously, noting that they had wanted to make some changes to it prior to renewing it in March.

Village President Kenny Kempfer stated that per the current agreement, “everything is our responsibility.” This includes maintenance, cleaning and repairs. “And we don’t really receive a lot of benefits economically considering the cost.”
