Dayton budget approved on third reading following pathway discussion
DAYTON — The town of Dayton’s $1.98 million budget was approved Wednesday but not without one final discussion about allocating $10,000 toward development of a pathway between the towns of Dayton and Ranchester.
The Tongue River Valley pathway project, which would run adjacent to U.S. Highway 14 along the five miles between the towns of Dayton and Ranchester, would encourage physical activity by providing a safe place for valley residents of all ages to walk and bike, according to members of the TR Path Committee. It would also increase connectivity between the towns, which could potentially have a positive economic impact on both Ranchester and Dayton, according to the project’s feasibility study.
The construction of the pathway is expected to cost roughly $3.2 million, according to TR Path Committee member and Tongue River Valley Community Center Executive Director Erin Kilbride.
