The Ottumwa City Council (Iowa) is set to decide whether or not to increase the cost of the contract for the new campground shower house.

According to a report, initially, the cost was $573,672, but they’re looking to raise the amount by $15,250.

The new total would be $589,717.

As per Ottumwa City Administrator Philip Rath, the amount is still below budget. The city has allocated around $600,000 for the new shower house.

Rath added that about $300,000 of the project is coming from American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. The rest of the amount is coming from leftover capital funds.

The American Rescue Plan is delivering direct relief to the American people, rescuing the American economy. 

According to its website, Ottumwa parks offer a wide variety of opportunities, including camping, fishing, bicycle, and pedestrian trails, baseball and softball diamonds, children’s playgrounds, disc golf, volleyball courts, picnic areas, tennis and basketball courts, performance stage areas, soccer fields, and more.
