$8K budgeted to raise the High Water Rock

[Update per @Jay_Vavra : The Rock is owned by the State of Iowa]

Evidently, the Flood of 2016 moved the High Water Rock in the Cedar River and the Linn County Board of Supervisors wants it restored to its original height/location. Yesterday, on a 5-0 vote, the Board tentatively approved $8,000 in its FY2018 budget to restore the Rock.

We’re waiting for the Feds to release millions of dollars for flood protection for Cedar Rapids. What message are we sending to the Feds when we allocate tax dollars to restore a rock in the middle of a river? -Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
