A black and brown mound has been climbing the sky on Clarks Street in Charles City ever since the softball and baseball complex started its construction. Transported dirt created a hill towering up to the trees. Mayor Dean Andrews believes, with the right plan, it might soon be time to knock down, ‘Mount College Grounds.’
The original plan for the College Grounds involved resurfacing the fields. However, the amount of dirt transported to the site was more than expected. Andrews hopes the city can soon take some of the dirt to the new wastewater facility site. This will be a two-birds-with-one-stone solution.
