Flood damage costly; city donates labor, equipment to cleanup efforts

DIXON – The Riverfront Commission expects to spend all $360 of its budgeted contingency money – and then some – on flood damage, Chairman Larry Reed said Tuesday.

The flood washed out mostly plants and mulch, and left piles of debris and clumps of mud at the Heritage Crossing. It will cost more than $2,000 just to replace the dirt, Reed said.

The city donated labor, equipment and material to help with repairs, including the use of maintenance worker John Groshan, he said.

Also Tuesday, members learned that 123 bottles of its Riverfront wine have been sold at the Crystal Cork Wine Shoppe, garnering $2,460 for the commission.

About 135 bottles still are available at the Crystal Cork, 219 W. First St.
