(KLZA)-- A new feature will be built near the Falls City Aquatic Park.

A waterfall feature, depicting the falls on the Nemaha River that Falls City was named for will be placed on city property near the aquatic park.

Second Ward City Councilman Lucas Froeschl started the ball rolling on the project and told his fellow Council members Monday evening that all the money to pay for the $68,039 project has been raised privately. The money was raised through the Richardson Foundation.

A $7,500 grant for the project was approved by the Nemaha Natural Resources District. In addition, Froeschl has secured permission to place a bronze donor plaque and Nebraska Historical markers at the site.

Froeschl has worked with Grimm's Gardens and Scholl Landscaping to design the project. A bronze donor plaque and Nebraska Historical markers will be placed at the site of the display.

The Council approved having the Utility Department run the necessary water lines and power to the site, and provide just over $3,400 in a contingency budget for potential unknown costs.

The project should be completed by June 15th.
