Fox River Dam Joint Task Force meeting is set for May 2

The Fox River Dam Joint Task Force will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 2, at the St. Charles Municipal Building, 2 E. Main St. All are encouraged to attend.

The joint task force is charged with gathering and analyzing all relevant information related to environmental, economic, and recreational impacts of the dam for the city, park district, residents, and businesses.

The joint task force was formed following the United States Army Corps of Engineers draft report recommending removal of nine dams along the Fox River, including the St. Charles dam.

Nine community representatives sit on the Joint Task Force: five from the City of St. Charles, three from the St. Charles Park District, and one from River Corridor Foundation of St. Charles.
