At the March 10 meeting of the Sleepy Eye (Minn.) City Council, council members talked about extending sewer and water utilities to the campground area north of the lake.

When the campground was expanded, including the addition of the two camper cabins, Brown-Nicollet Environmental Health Service agreed to a delay in the requirement that a shower/bathroom facility be built in the campground until the end of 2016.

Park and recreation Director Steve Lingen reported that his board has begun planning for a shower house that would be built south of the camper cabins, west of the parking lot.

A dump station is also required and could be hooked right into the city sewer line proposed for the park.

The council gave approval for the city engineer to conduct a preliminary study on the utility extension.
