Dixon mayor: Many docks will be needed
Panel looks at proposals; maintenance an issue
DIXON – Docks will quickly prove popular once they're installed in the Rock River in downtown Dixon, the mayor said Saturday.
Mayor Jim Burke spoke Saturday during a meeting of the Riverfront Commission's subcommittee of boating enthusiasts, which is looking at two proposals for docks east of the Peoria Avenue bridge on the south side of the Rock River.
One proposal called for docks farther out in the river, with 14 boats able to dock at one time. The other proposal, with angled docks that wouldn't extend as far, would allow for 10.
Burke said no such docks are available now between Dixon and Sterling-Rock Falls.
