Quade Dam – When the dam was installed there was a specific height in which the top of the dam was to be set at which in turn sets the maximum height of the water behind the dam. This was agreed to by all entities when the permit was applied for. Sometime after the original installation of the dam, a board was added to the top of the dam which increased the dam height and thus the height of the water. Acoma Township had already built 196th St and set the culvert thus adding any height to the dam would have an effect on the road. Acoma Township is seeking to have the board removed so it meets the original permitted level and design.
Policies – Acoma Township has gone through a process of writing policies so we have a standard to follow. We plan to review each one before they are approved.
FEMA – There was a lot of damage to our roads in 2019 and McLeod County was declared a disaster area. Acoma Township has been working with FEMA and so far, we have collected $105,831.29 for the damage to our roads. Acoma will be receiving it's last payment in the amount of $3,700, which covers the time and expense Acoma incurred collecting the data for FEMA..
