Pottawattamie County officials have thrown their support behind amending a forgivable loan to the city of Underwood to assist in developing a portion of a bike trail.
During its regular meeting Tuesday morning, the county board of supervisors unanimously approved a request to amend Exhibit A of a forgivable promissory note agreement between the county and the city of Underwood. In March, the board approved the agreement for $125,000 to assist the city in developing a bike trail stop with restrooms and a pickleball court. However, Underwood City Administrator and Clerk Cindy Sorlien says the city council recently voted to include and prioritize developing a trail within city limits from North Street to 4th Street.
"So instead of doing the restroom or bathroom for the trails and the pickleball court," she said, "still do the pickleball court at Trailhead Park, but to do a portion of the trail that has come through Underwood."
