Playland lease extended


Electric City took action last Tuesday night to extend its lease with Coulee Playland for another 10 years.

The 13-acre resort provides camping and fishing activity on Banks Lake, and is leased by the city from the Bureau of Reclamation, which subleases it to Hal Rauch, manager of the resort.

The agreement calls for a lease review every five years.

In separate action, the council approved a list of modest increases for services by the resort.

The council regularly reviews increases in fees charged by the resort.

Rauch has been involved in the resort since 1984, when the property fell within the control of the state parks department.

In the new lease, Coulee Playland pays the city $7,500 a year with the money going into a capital improvement fund. Under the old lease, Coulee Playland paid the city $5,500 a year.
