During the back-to-back floods of late August and early September 2018, a reported 27 feet of water from the banks of the Baraboo River flooded the Village of Rock Springs’ downtown. Nine buildings were ruled substantially damaged, including the village’s former community center on Broadway Street.
The new 8,200 SF municipal building is one of the first steps in moving the flood-stricken village forward in a project that will relocate its downtown out of the Baraboo River flood plain.
The new municipal building includes a library, community center, village hall, fire station and village public works shop. Rock Springs used several types of funding to cover the cost of the estimated $2 million project, including village funds, library funds, HUD’s Community Development Block Grant program, Sauk County CDBG Close grant, FEMA funds and a $250,000 grant through USDA.
Vierbicher provided civil engineering, surveying, stormwater management, permitting, and construction administration services for this project.
