New Missouri RV Park Proposal Gets Final OK
Construction workers, vacationers and anyone else just passing through will now have a place to stop in Hardin, Mo.
The Hardin Board of Aldermen met March 20 for a special meeting to approve the deal between the city and property owner Jason Raasch, according to The Daily News, Richmond, Mo.
Raasch has been working with the city since last summer to bring the RV park to the town of less than 1,000 southeast of Kansas City. Raasch told the board that there is a real need for an RV park in the area due to the railroad workers and construction workers that come through the area each year. He pointed to RV parks in Carrollton and Lexington as an example.
As part of the deal, Raasch will pay a minimum water and sewer bill each month of about $330 a month. At last week’s regular meeting City Clerk Patty Lam brought it to the board’s attention that Raasch was not ready to move forward, however, until an old water meter to the property is fixed. Lam said the city has agreed to make the repair.
The city will hold another special meeting March 31, to discuss different options and costs for hooking onto the city's water line. The city will meet with an engineer that is familiar with Missouri Department of Natural Resources standards.
