King Boreas:

city officials said they hope the most recent study, contracted last month with Barr Engineering Co., will guide them in deciding when and how they can reopen the 50-acre fossil grounds for public use.

Results could be available in July and decisions could be made by fall, Hahm said. Possible measures could include signage at the fossil grounds entrance, he said.

“Until we see the outcomes of the engineering reports, it’s premature at this point to speculate on what would be prudent for management of that area,” Hahm said.
