    GREEN BAY, WI -- The Department of Natural Resources will conduct a public meeting on Saturday, January 22, 2011, to provide information to the public regarding the completed recent study of the Fox River Dam at Montello at the Andy Krakow Public Fishing and Access Site. The meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Community Room in the Montello High School located at 222 Forest Lane in Montello.

    The architectural and engineering firm, AECOM of Middleton, was hired by the state to perform structural analysis of the dike, water control gates, and the spillway to determine the condition of those structures and to provide alternative repair solutions and associated cost estimates. Recreational facility development options are included in the alternatives. Representatives of AECOM will be present at the meeting and will provide a brief overview of their findings. Department of Natural Resources staff also will be present to discuss the department’s preferred options with the public and the next steps in the process.

    Should this meeting be canceled due to inclement weather, Saturday, February 5th, has been reserved at the same location if necessary.
