With a generous donation and a change of rules, citizens will soon reap the benefit of swimming at a Guthrie lake.
According to City Manager Matt Mueller, city crews have been working to create a formal swim area.
“The location reflects the area recommended by the consulting group completing the Liberty Lake master plan and should be a nice addition to the area when it is complete,” Mueller said.
Dolese, who has been a community partner in the project, has offered the city 640 tons of sand to get the beach going.
Currently, crews are working to create a smooth transition for a swim area and will be bringing in the sand when that is complete.
