Letters To The Editor

Letter: Jefferson County, Mo.

After many years of planning and delays due to high water, and many other issues, work has finally begun on a new excursion boat landing in Kimmswick, Mo.

Ground has been broken, and the pilings are being placed. The long-anticipated arrival of excursion boats to the Jefferson County shores will soon be a reality, including the historic Delta Queen.

New business ventures are starting in the old historic town, including the LaChance Winery of Kimmswick. Other well-known establishments such as the Blue Owl Restaurant and numerous shops in the city welcome this great progress for the town.

For more information about Kimmswick and new business opportunities contact: the city of Kimmswick at www.cityofkimmswick.org; the Jefferson County Economic Development Corporation at www.jeffcoedc.org; or the Jefferson County Port Authority at www.jeffersoncountyportauthority.com.
