This cost estimate is based on the actual maintenance costs of the El Dorado Trail from Missouri Flat Road to Forni Road. The County’s Library Department will be operating the Historical Railroad Museum facility that will be located in the proposed Railroad Park. The Library Department estimates that approximately $5,000 of the operating costs could be off-set with volunteer labor and donations. There is also potential future revenue that could be generated from facility rental fees that may also off-set the operating costs.
