'No Jumping' signs to be posted at Zumbro cliff

With submerged rocks just below the surface and crumbling cliffs above, jumping into the Zumbro River from the adjacent cliffs in Mantorville just really isn't a good idea.

At their meeting May 8, Mantorville city council members voted unanimously to purchase and install signs saying, "Danger - No Trespassing - No Cliff Jumping - No Cliff Diving - Submerged Rock," on both sides of the river near Riverside Park. Law enforcement personnel from the Dodge County Sheriff's office will probably be handing out a few tickets until would-be jumpers realize the city is serious about protecting people. All the ropes that had been tied to nearby trees have already been removed.

In other business, the council members told Eagle Scout candidate Max Craft to continue pursuing his plan to install some stations for a dog agility park at the Kasson Mantorville Dog Park, which is situated below the city water tower.

Craft plans to raise the money through donations to purchase the equipment. He had already explained his idea to members of the city Park and Recreation Board who agreed with the plan.

Council members accepted the resignation of Jane Olive from the local Economic Development Authority.

Council members also approved the following street blockages from noon Sept 8 through 6 p.m. Sept 10 (during Marigold Days): Fourth St from Highway 57 to West St, Fifth St from Highway 57 to West St, Clay St from Third St to Sixth St.

Coming up is the city's Spring Fling on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Included in the activities are a rummage, book, and bake sale at the Opera House, Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.; a garden seminar at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Greek Revival House, 411 Clay St; the garden tractor show and parade from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Riverside Park; a plant and garden swap at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Greek Revival House; the Restoration House will be open Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.; and local businesses will have spring specials.

The council members meet again at 6:30 p.m. May 22.
