PROJECTS

• In 2010, we received $425,000 from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. We were able to purchase a 2010 Takeuchi TL250 Skid Steer with attachments, totaling $73,000. We also made road improvements to 6 miles of our Reservation Roads. This consisted of removal of roadside vegetation, cleaning, reshaping drainage ditches, and adding a total of 4,000 tons of gravel. We were also able to improve 1,200 ft of Falcon Rd from K20 to a quarter mile going south with 4” of pavement.

• Some of the profits made from these projects purchased a 2010 Ford F550 with electric end-dump.

• So far this year our projects have been mainly in the Agriculture business. We are currently working on Tribal Tract #53. We are removing 3 gradient systems and installing 3 tile terrace systems. This is an Equip project through NRCS.

• In the near future, we are to construct an access road to the new Administrative Bldg located to the immediate north of the Kickapoo Fire Department.

• We will soon begin road construction on 130th road from Hwy 75 going 5 miles east to Goldfinch Rd. This road will be 4” of pavement with markings. Anticipated construction from start to finish is 5 months.
